    This is the weight plate inside my motorhome

    I understand the first line as the maximum laden weight and the last two are maximum weights over the axles. Whats the 5500kg line? Total train weight if towing ??

    Ok, thought so. About to load up for Euro trip and although I have visited the weighbridge just after we got the van (loaded up for first Uk trip), I'd like to make sure we're not overdoing it . . .

    Wise move.. Get stopped over the water and its a cash fine on the spot plus unload any excess weight... !

    Last time, I had 100% water and 100% fuel and I had about 120Kg spare. I don't intend filling the water up anymore than 50% this time.

    (by the way that is a bit of astroturf cut to size on top of the doormat!)
