    The critical question is do owners weigh the individual axles or just the whole unit,my unit has 600kg spare but only 350 on the back axle with no storage of note ahead of mid wheel base.
    Looking around many manufacturers are falsely claiming payloads which are not feasible unless you fit a roof box over the cab and hang the spare wheel from the front bumper and motoring journalists are not pointing this out strongly enough.

  2. Philip Nicholson says:

    Many new motorhomes plated at 3500kg have hardly any payload. Manufacturers like.. Must be hundreds if not thousands of Van’s running illegally..On a forum I am on a guy purchased brand new van,,it was overloaded as soon as he and his wife sat in it..He did get his money back.
