    Hi, after reading all the posts on payload I'm now worried about the weight of my van and I'm looking for the nearest weighbridge to Glasgow. Tried google but didnt seem to find what I'm looking for, does anyone know of one?

    Just go to an MOT centre that can do larger vehicles such as your motorhome, they should have a rolling road with a built in weight sensor.

    Sorry, not quite correct - the weight sensors on the brake rollers are not accurate for weighing purposes :Sad: - they only give an indication of weight to the machine so the braking percentages can be worked out.

    Almost any scrap metal yard will have an accurate weigh bridge - they are classified as 'trade' weighbridges and must be certified as accurate. Yellow pages will tell you the one nearest to you and for a small sum (or even a donation to the tea fund), they'll probably weigh your vehicle for you.

    We have a scrap cardboard place in uttoxeter and they can't do enough for you and just won't take anything, but it does say public weighbridge on the gate, do they get paid by some government thing or something?

    Thanks everyone for your help, I'll be able to phone round now and find somewhere, dont want to have to leave anything behind if we were pulled over. We stay on the North side and the van is in storage but anywhere around Glasgow would do to put my mind at rest, or make us leave half the stuff at home and start dieting::bigsmile:

    Try the local refuse centre at Bishopbriggs if your north of the city. I have gotten to know the guys at Queenslie depot. Only costs me a few sweets.::bigsmile:
