    Only way is to take it to a weighbridge, as the published weights are often miles out (and not usually in your favour)
    Put all your stuff in, wegh it and then take some of it out to get it below the MGW:Laughing:

    weight bridge charge

    £6-00 around my way (Hemel Hempstead) and they would not weight each axle. Whole vehicle or nought.

    Your vehicle will have a plate on it somewhere that states the MAX gross weight ( or whatever fancy name they call it now).. It may also be stated on your V5 log book.
    So you need to get to a weighbridge and see where your at..
