POLL NOW CLOSED – Thanks to everyone who voted
When it comes to loading your motorhome you need to make sure you’re not exceeding its gross weight (MTPLM).
The MTPLM is the maximum amount which your fully laden motorhome can weigh and still be legal to drive – it combines the weight of the vehicle including the driver and a full tank of fuel, plus the payload, which includes your equipment, personal possessions and passengers.
Overloading or too much weight over the axles can lead to instability as well as your motorhome’s handling and performance.
In this month’s poll, we’d like to know if you weigh your motorhome for its MTPLM before every trip or perhaps only now and again as you add to your payload. Or maybe you simply weigh items as you load them so you don’t exceed your motorhome’s maximum payload.
Simply choose from one of the options below and feel free to share your motorhome loading tips and reasons for weighing your motorhome, or not, in the comments box below.
We’ll report back the results in April.
