    only one way to know for sure.

    empty everything out except driver + water, gas and fuel then go to a public weighbridge.

    Excuse me if I am being dumb, as I am new to MH'ing............is the answer not on a small matel plate under the bonnet?

    I know when we looked at the vean we are getting in about 2 weeks time, that the weights were on a small plate, riveted to the front edge of bodywork when they lifted the bonnet............I only know this as I had to make sure the vehicle is under 3500 so that Ras can drive it on a normal modern driving licence

    Hope thats correct.

    Hi the reason i wanted to know the weight in tonnage is because when we take the van back into Ireland to have it re plated as we live there ,our Government has i tax called VRT which i believe to be illegal, but they are getting away with it. So they base the weight on the tonnage of the vehicle if it is over 3 ton the amount payable is 50 euro. If the van is less it is 13.5% of the On the road market value. Our customs can come up with any figure for this value as we do not have any Swift dealers in Ireland.

    then it looks like you pay 50e . i would have thought it was based on the max gross weight. most taxes are. let us know for sure ,always interested in countries taxing. cheers alan.

    thats one hell of a difference....€50 as opposed to 13.5% of market value.
    with a motorhome that could be €500 or more :Eeek:
