On returning to our storage compound today I came across a fellow MHomer loading a light weight scooter on to a newly purchased and specially built rack. Having given all dimensions wheelbase rear overhang and I assume axle weights he was a little despondent to find that on a visit to the weighbridge with little else in the rear of the van he it was infact 60kg over on the back axle. Given that the scooter only weighs 80kg I think that some one at the builders made the wrong calculations with the rear fulcrum effect. Clearly overloading axles on 3.5tonne lwb vans is a common problem. I nearly fell into the same trap last year, we went to the show at the NEC ordered a new Chausson Welcome 7.4 . It did not come with an Awning Spare wheel, 2nd leisure battery or tow bar notwithstanding the bike rack and Solar Panel we required. After a few sleepless night I then found that you could only load 150kg behind the rear axle! No wonder the manufacturers were not forthcoming with the axle weights in M I R O. Equation equals no payload!! Cancelled the order, without issues and bought a low mileage tag axle model at 5000 kg gross. loads of room and payload! Happy days.:thumb: .
