Hi fortyeight,

The quick way might be to let us know your model and year, from which some of our owners might have personal experience.

The route that I have gone in the past is to get the van weighed with all the kit we use in it.

I use a local weighbridge which gives me front and rear axle weights and also total weight.

You could also work from the plate which will almost certainly be on your van (often in a door post) giving the weights, assuming you do not over load your van.

Then look at the tyres you have fitted, they will for arguments sake say something like 215x75R 16C (mine)

Armed with this info visit the tyresafe.org site

Armed with the info you should be able to get a pretty accurate pressure.

All the best.

The plate will give the pressures for the base chassis and any handbook supplied by the coach builder should display any changes.
