I have been reading quite a few posts recently on overloaded Motorhomes and decided that before my French Holiday I should have the "Van" weighed. Filled up with Diesel & packed the van in what we considered to be holiday trim. Onto the weighbridge and the operator asked me if I wanted to remove anything before he wrote out the ticket - we were 3520kg Dropped the water from the fresh tank - straight onto the weighing platform but it did reduce the level a bit. - 3505 kg Took Barbara's wheelchair out of the van and we were eventually down to 3490kg :Sad: I have since had an afternoon session of lightening the van and removing the "Non essentials" that seem to sit around in the van & never get used. I will be going back to the weighbridge to check my efforts, but it has made me realise how much things like Tinned Dog Food, tools and tent pegs weigh.
