It seems that most garages have a 150Kg limit identified somewhere.

Interesting that, across a diverse range of manufacturers, this value is the same.

Personally, I don’t believe that this is a design limit but rather that manufacturers are not prepared to do the analysis to determine a realistic limiting value and default to this 150Kg value.

Not all mohos have a 150kg limit. Our previous Adria did, but our present Hymer has a limit of 450kg. But that is just the structural strength. If I was to put 450kg in there I suspect my rear axle would be overloaded. Having said that I reckon I probably have about 250kg in there when the scooter is loaded.

Our Hymer it's 350kg with an option of 450kg, lsastHymer was only 250 with option of 350.

With our garage loaded with around 100 kg of stuff we still have 400 kg spare on the rear axle.:D

More than toes wet now!
Allegedly the weight constrain for our garage is 125kg but as it's an AT maybe they're excluding the allowance for the fish tank and waterfall!:rolleyes:

It will need to be a recent Hymer pre about 2016 were only 250kg - I think.
Mine is 2015 and it is 450kg.

Edit. Just checked the 2015 Price List again. In the A class range the Exsis, B class premiumline and ML-I were 350kg with 450 optional, B class (mine), B class SL, Duomobile, and Starline were 450kg

My 2014 Exsis was 250 kg with an option for 350, they changed the model in 2016 that's why I said about 2016. Need to check anyway as not many owners have the upgrade option.

Being a Swift anything more than a bag of sugar and I would start to worry !(y)
So to be fair best say a couple of kilos ;)
