On our 2nd MH now a AutoTrail Savannah which we're absolutely delighted with
Can anyone please advise what is included by Chausson to arrive at their MIRO?
Thank you

Good luck with that...I searched for ages for ours some years ago

Ended up taking it to a weigbridge with full tank of water and fuel and one gas bottle to baseline it myself!!!

Meant to add...
if the van is less than 3ish years old then there is supposedly some EC directive that harmonises how they are calculated, before this then it seems to be upto each manufacturer to define how they do it..chausson were a bit lite on reality...hence doing my own!!

There is a definition, Driver plus fuel etc but as stated don't bother worrying until you have put the vehicle on a weighbridge.

I think the criteria they are meant to use is the vehicle plus 50 litres of water plus half a tank of fuel play 75kg allowance for the driver. But all the converters lie so ignore whatever they tell you the MIRO is and as others have said go and find a weigh bridge.

Chausson state full fuel, water, gas, driver at 70Kg. Or they did when we got ours!

The figure will still be bollocks though!

Take it to the weighbridge, or if it is to be ordered, get a chassis upgrade!(y)

Thanks guys I appreciate all your comments. I have now read EU Directive 95/48/ec which helps but will take your advice

Since 1996, had Elddis/Swift/Rapido/Rimor/Chausson MHs. Autocruise/Globecar PVCs/Compactline i-138
If it's any consolation, we had a Chausson Flash 04 (2010) and even at the MIRO it still had a reported payload of over 700kg which was actually true!

I think ours said driver at 75Kg and when we took it to the weighbridge it was pretty much spot on what they said.

If it's any consolation, we had a Chausson Flash 04 (2010) and even at the MIRO it still had a reported payload of over 700kg which was actually true!

One of the reasons (actually the main reason) we went for the Chausson - ticked more boxes than any other van we looked at.
