Sounds to me then that there must be several MH's being driven around with weights exceeding 3500kg, their owners not being aware of it, and not being able to rely on what the V5 shows, and so will therefor be unwittingly driving around without holding the correct D/Licence? I'm even more confused now!!!

It gets worsererer.

Not forgetting those vans which are less than 3500kg from the factory, our Wentworth plated weight was 3400kg, now it's 3700kg, but not on the v5, it is as always the drivers responsiblit to check everything, ignorance not being an excuse under law.

The MH is 2003 , I bought it off the previous owner about 7 years ago ( just before he died) so who knows what !

So how do you know the weight has been uprated? Is it just the the registration document?

Yes it's stated at 3850 on the V5 reg doc and I have been taxing it at that for the last 6 years but also when I contacted Niesmann recently this was their reply quote-

Dear Mr. Mayberry,

thank you very much for your information.

In fact the Arto is already registered with 3.850 kg you only need a new type plate from us showing also 3.850 kg.

For this please contact our Service Partner Travel World in Telford Shropshire and order the type plate with article number 8046751. They can also inform you about the price.


........and then of course I contacted Travelworld and they said quote -

Hi Mr Mayberry

I have been asked to contact you regarding your New Type Plate.

Cost of this part is £137.92 Inc Vat & Delivery

Please let me know if you wish to go ahead with this order. If you wish to proceed, please send me a photo of your Existing plate and you full address and contact details so I can set you up on our system.

Many Thanks

Mac

Hi

I would contact SVTech and see what their price is for a new plate only. It may be cheper than their full uprating price?

It must be very frustrating.

Regards
