Lenny is correct but that's not the whole story as the only way to know if you are not overloaded either in total or on each axle is to get your MH weighed including each axle individually - it's possible to be below your 3500kg limit but still be overweight on an axle (often the rear one).

Since the original plate shows gross permitted weight of 3650 the Autotrail plate has been downrated to 3500 presumably to allow marketing to any driver who has not got a C1 licence for over that weight.

Therefore if you needed to it would probably be easy to have it uplated again to 3650, if you have the C1 licence.

You need an engineers report which you can get from SV Tech they charge £312 or Van Weight Engineering only £180 from them, you fill out a form & send photos of your plates & tyres they will send you the new plate & report and then you apply to DVLA, you will also get a refund of your VED difference it's only £165 over 3500kg.
You should be able to go to 3850kg without any mods.

When we upgraded our 2013 Autotrail Tracker from 3650 to 3850 kg had to put bigger tyres on and rear air suspension.🤔
