Now hubby has also mentioned that there have been some issues with actual weight vs compliance weight. Has anyone put their swan over a public weigh bridge? He said something about the manufacturers doing something a little dodgy by weighng them before fitting them out etc... I would have thought they manufacture them and then weigh them to get a weight for the compliance plate and then any accessories plus luggage, water, generators etc come off the 300kg load weight? He said people are having to modify their camper to make them stronger to handle the weight and make it legal to tow?? He said it's all over the internal defence forums.
the biggest problem is......
when Jayco build the standard van, they weigh it,and stamp the plaque
if the Dealer fits extra water tanks,aircon, solar panels etc - this weight is NOT on the plaque
hence the discrepancy
and it seems to be the same for nearly ALL the manufacturers
