    I was hoping to up load a photo of the plate, but have had trouble.
    The plate is fitted under the bonnet of my 2010 Hobby Transit MH. I am sure its all to do with weights etc. Some will sort it for me I am sure.

    The plate is about 3" square. The numbers on this read as the following:-

    Hobby- Wohnwagenwerk

    e13* 2007/46*0201
    Stufe 2
    Vin number
    3500 kg
    4500 kg
    1- 1750 kg
    2- 2250 kg
    3- kg

    It means that total weight of your motorhome, full loaded, including wine and wife, must not exceed 3500Kg, and that the total weight of your motorhome, including a trailer must not exceed 4500 Kg, and the final two numbers are the maximum loading allowed on the front and rear axle respectively

    Dont be concerned that the two axle weights add up to 4000kg.
    Thats to allow for uneven loading BUT the 3500kg CANNOT be exceeded for any reason.

    ........but you may want to drive to a weighbridge in full holiday trim, you may be surprised how heavy you are! About £7 for total and each axle locally at a hauliers. They will give you a print out.
    It will also help to determine your tyre pressures.
