    Took MH - yes, actually went on roads - to weighbridge, weighed it with us in it
    we either need to travel separately or go on serious diets. :Eeek:

    thats strange the scout has a good payload, what extras do you have fitted? did you have water on board. I weighed mine last year with heavy loads on for long trip abroad and we were still under (and Im not light)


    edit: just remembered yours is on a merc (payload for 2.7 is 515kg as appossed to faits 560kg) less of course any extras and manufactorers disscrepances

    Are you brave or stupid?? :Eeek::Eeek:

    No need for diets here.
    Had mine weighed last year, came in at 1600 front and 2000 rear. Gas bottles, water, dog, me clothes. That left 250kg for boss and a few other items. SWMBO is only 10 stone weakling though.
    Mine also passed MOT last week with no problems.
    My state pension went in bank on Monday.
    My insurance for MH just arrived, still under £300 with full UK and European cover both insurance and breakdown
    Everything roses in this little bit of Essex.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    The sun always shines on the righteous.

    ... now THAT has got to be the understatement of the year!!!:Eek!:

    If you're already 40kg over with NO 'supplies' on board you are gonna have to jettison a fair bit of existing kit ....:Blush:
