BEWARE - the stated weights is absolute bull***t for most motorhomes - we got Adria Coral A 680SK 2011 and found out the hard way.
3078kg in my vehicle document - this is dry weight with solar panels and no diesel, no water, no driver, no gas - empty motorhome. Even this didn't add up when we weighted everything. Steer away from this one if you're planning to drive using your standard car's cat B driving license and not over 3.5t in particular Austria, Germany and Switzerland in the EU or UK (over 250kg and your motorhome will be sent back on a trailer, heavy fines + problems for driving without required cat for over 3.5t). Also, always weight caravans or motorhomes before you purchase or hire as manufacturers don't tell the truth.
+ 145kg (occupants two adults 138 + kid 7kg) = 3223
+ 140kg (water) = 3363
+ 120kg (diesel) = 3483
+ 46kg (2 x 23kg gas) = 5529
+ 25kg (2 bikes on the rack) = 5582
+ 14kg (thule baby trailer) = 5596
+ 5kg toilet liquid = 5601
+ 20kg (fridge and kitchen contents - we had less but am allowing more) = 3616
+ 14kg (external table + chairs) = 3630
+ 7kg (artificaial grass 7 x 2m grass) = 3637
+ 5kg (aquaroll) = 3657
+ 15kg (25m hookup cable and 15m water hose) = 3672
+ 15kg (extra 25m hookup cable and 15m water hose) = 3687
+ 50 kg (all other stuff like cloths, boots, electronics, adapters, water connectors etc.) = 3737
+ 7k induction stove = 3744
+1 kg electric kettle = 3745
We weighted all above while being in our motorhome and it came up to !!! 3880kg !!!!! So where does the extra 135kg weight come from???
- 5kg TV
- 15kg extra cables + hose
- 7kg rear top matress
- 7kg grass
- 140kg epmty water tank (question: what's the purpsoe of going away to remote placed without water?)
- 20kg (20L of used up diesel)
- 23kg (1 x gas bottle)
- some other stuff we could live without and ended up weighting 3690kg!!
That's still 190 kg over the limit in all cases without waste water and can't leave anything else behind as it would make our trip pointelss i.e. no water = can't get away from civilisation, no bicycles no = way to get around without moving the motorhome, no trailer = would not be able to go without the kid, no electric stove/kettle = we'd use up our 1 gas bottle left much quicker. We plan on using half tank of diesel which should drop another 40kgs hence will be down to 3650kg. Maybe they'll turn a blind eye in Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Greece and other surrounding countries but we'll see.
I would have to remove every passenger and all stuff in order to be able to go with both gas bottles and maybe some water in the tank in a motohome that sleeps 6-8 people and allow to drive with 4 seat belts - not a chance unless you compromise as above! I will be trying to modify the suspension, re-register it up to at least 3.8t and get a cat C license cause it's all way too pointless to risky driving as your INSURANCE WON'T COVER for overloaded vehicle (am still to find out about any constructional limits and whether anything such as tyres can give up with unmodified re-registered to 3.8t which could be catastrophic and you migh be a driving danger to your family and others), paying fines or being towed away as there is no way to unload enough stuff to reach desired limit of 3.5t.
