Hi,
I am getting conflicting information regarding my Expos pay load. some dealerships say that the pay load starts after I load my tents that the van came with, and others say that the pay load starts with the tents already loaded.
I cant find the correct answer.
Anyone that can please advise me?
Many thanks

Hi Stanley. Dit sluit jou tent in. As jy  deur verkeers beamptes geweeg gaan word trek hul jou hele Karavaan op die skaal en dan mag hy nie meer weeg as sy spesifikasies nie. Bottom line gaan dit oor die gewig op jou karavaan as. Jou makers plate sê hoeveel jy kan laai en dit mag nie oorskry word. Jy mag dalk so n tien persent grasie hê.

Hoop dit help

The tent weighs quite a lot, see you drive a Triton bakkie. Suggest you pack as much as possible of the heavy stuff in the bakkie incl the tent, That way you should be OK with what you want to pack in the caravan. I pack my Ranger D/C as full as possible, result is an almost empty caravan (Fleetline L) which makes handling/moving it when pitching camp a breeze

Well if you say you can only load 160 kg it means you have basically nothing left after you  have packed the tent.

Ai ai ai........... Jurgens really made a foul-up with the weight issues on the caravans.
