Hi Hez! We must stop meeting like this! :roll:
Now then, listen... Our Coral has a payload of 620kg. How did we cope with caravan payloads of 200kg? :roll:
So whilst Our Coral was empty, straight from the handover, I weighed it. 2,960kg... no driver, a little water, a little fuel, and the additional spare wheel. So I'm down to 540kg payload.
But this motorhome was set up by Adria for the Oct07 NEC and has cruise control, cab aircon, second airbag, extra rooflight, silver finish stuck on... I presume all this extra weight comes off the payload?
Since the handover, we've added a second battery and a solar panel...
Last September, I weighed her in 'travel trim', ready for a month in Scotland. I had 310kg spare on the front axle, 100kg spare on the back axle BUT only 60kg spare on the MAM!! And I still needed to accommodate my sister, her belongings, oh, and AuntieSandra! :roll: :wink: I drained some of the fresh water and left it at that. But I bet I was 100kg over the 3,500kg MAM.
Since then, we have both been through the lockers and removed as much as possible, but, come Thursday/Friday, before we leave home, I'll treat Our Coral to the weighbridge treat, just for a fiver. If I need to adjust, I still have time to do so.
I have never been stopped by VOSA. The longer we go without the inevitable happening, the more likely it is to happen!! (Just like my random breath-test before last Christmas!!)
Fill in the metaphoric hole BEFORE you fall into it. "How did I end up in this hole? How do I get out of it?"
Going now, jobs to do for Amboise!
