    Morning all, sorry to ask what to some will seem a stupid question

    I am trying to upgrade my weight through SV Tech, they have asked what BHP and engine is fitted, suggesting it might be a 518 or 519

    I have nothing in my paperwork, can't find anything on any plates and being an A class apart from the Merc badge on the front and back there is no other clue

    I am pretty sure it is a Sprinter chassis and has twin rear wheels, anybody know where I can look, my V5 has already been sent to them so the answer is not on there

    Chassis was built in 2007, Hymer did their bit in 2008

    Anybody know about Mercs please

    A Merc dealer should be able to tell you from the VIN plate, or why not contact Hymer there is a contact form on their website.

    the original sprinter vin plate will have the max weight on it irrespective of your logbook and I expect it is 4600kgs

    Go to
    Mercedes-Benz VIN decoder (just search on Google) and enter your VIN number, it'll answer your question

    David, I love it, little did you realise what a voyage of discovery your quick trip to the weighbridge would entail. Oh yes as to your question I'm completely clueless, but then you probably realised that, we're just happy that you are (physically) safe with your payloads (if not formally yet).
