    R20 HYLO gross weight

    I wonder if others have been on a weighbridge and how they fared.We have just returned from nearly three weeks in Scotland when we set off we got weighed driver,passenger,full fuel tank,full water tank, full flush tank ,two lightweight chairs,two very small alloy tables/stools,twenty food tins/jars, rice, pasta,etc.half full fridge plus the usual stuff that lives in the camper everything is lightweightand minimal for two people.(driver and passenger might have put a few pounds on over the years)We have no awning,tent,bikes,we have a box that sits on the toilet between the berths that contains a small television and small computer.I thought we would be well under weight but were only 10Kgs.under and the back axle was bang on the max. We don't usually travel with full water tanks so that would give some leeway.
    We covered 2664 miles at 55.02 mpg :so happy:we cruise at 60mph on motorways etc.I checked this three times as we were on a lot of single track roads stopping and starting at the passing places it as also seemed more uphill than downhill.

    We have just returned from Northumberland and were pretty well laden to start with but on the way home we had to pick up the mother in law with all here luggage along with some motorcycle parts. All in all we were pretty heavy but the Hylo handled and cruised fine. Only problem we had was a "whining" noise coming from the back of the camper but on investigation this proved to be coming from the mother in law so not an issue.

      You are WICKED, Geoff

      Have just spotted this thread - we carry pretty much the same sort of stuff as you, Joe, except for the tv and computer. Sometimes we carry a small tent or awning. Now I can see why people only carry a minimal amount of water, and even think twice re how much food to carry. Thanks for the warning.

        Its amazing just how many motorhomes of all sizes are out there on or over the weight limit. We carry loads more than that, add a surfboard & gear, two bikes and a Springer Spaniel...
        VOSA roadside teams are all clued up about motorhome weight limits and are likely to target m/homes for a 'pull' and trip to the weighbridge - so be careful.

        We see-saw between huge RV motorhomes and small campers like VW's and the Romahome so have two lots of camping kit. (A shed-full in fact)
