    I was worried that we may have been a bit tail heavy with the addition of our Honda SH50 on the tow bar.
    Just back from the weigh bridge.Our van in full fighting trim,moped,full fuel, gas and water weighed in at 2920kg both axles well within limits. The Fiat plate gives us a MAM of 3,400kg. That means we have 400kg spare or 80kg if we leave the Trigano plate on, it's still a hell of a lot more than most vans.
    All packed up and nowhere to go!

    correct me if im wrong but does this thread relate to a previous one regarding fiat and trigano plate weights conflicting.

    if it does i take it there was no weights printed on the V5 ?
