When attending a public weighbridge, is it necessary to load the MoHo up with absolutely everything including food and clothes? Or is it ok to estimate the weight of those items (plus the wife) as long as fuel, water, gas cylinders and all of the rest of the tut is on board at the time of weighing.
Don't really want to start a trip at a weighbridge!

Also, what's the drill? Do the weighbridge operators guide you as to the procedure? Do they explain the certificate? Do you drive on and weigh the front, then the rear, then the whole vehicle? What?

A local reputable metal scrap company specifically mention weighing motorhomes on their website, so thought I'd go there.

Hi.
Just an observation. When i used scrap metal yards to check weigh loads,i found it usefull to give the magnet crane drive a couple of quid to "Sweep" the area with the magnet..... Tyres aren't cheap,so to me, lose £2 up front,than lose whatever a m/home tyre-s? may cost.
Of course,it may be a super clean area... look first.

Decide what you need to know. I want to know my all-up axle weights with the van in holiday trim so I call in when I'm on a trip and the van is as heavy as it is ever likely to be. Weighbridge operators tend to know what you're doing so simply drive on first with only the front axle then when the man indicates move forward so both axles are on the plate. You'll be given a ticket with the weights printed on it at which point you offer to pay.
