Autosleeper Polensa 2002 Payload.

Post by BML on Tue Jul 21, 2015 10:53 am

My wife keeps winging about the few books I take augmented by a few more I always buy.  I have read that some Motorhomes actually leave the factory over weight so I'm looking for advise as to what weight my Motorhome should be with a driver and passenger plus food, water and gas.  Hopefully that will tell me what extra weight such as books I can carry.

How about going to a weigh bridge loaded as if going away, then you will know how you stand,

 I did this last year, with full tank of fuel / water etc.  and was surprised the surplus weight I had left to use, haven`t though, I have a cupboard just for books, site books info books cameras , tablets etc .there is usually a public weigh bridge in most areas, not expensive.

Every spare corner of our Pollensa is packed with paperbacks when we go away, probably around thirty or so, for Mrs B.  

I, on the other hand, carry just short of 1,000 books.  
Thankfully, mine are on my Kindle.

I can't persuade Mrs B to have one, as she says she likes the feel of a proper book.
I, on the other hand, find holding a 'proper' book a pain in the bum.

But that's a whole different topic.

To answer your question, the various relevant weights are shown in your Pollensa handbook.  If that's not one of the books you carry, let me know and I'll look them up in ours for you.

cheers

BML,
The definitive answer is on the plate under your bonnet where you will find your maximum allowed mass, plus the individual maximums for each of the two axles.
As Daisy mae says; you must go to a weighbridge in your normal running order and see what the load on each axle is.

Many thanks all.  I will have a look when I've recovered from my week away.
