Ask the manufacturer. I have Michelin tyres on my MH and they were very quick to reply to my E-mail when I asked for normal and fully laden. And the pressures were not as I'd been told by the previous owners or in the Ducato handbook.

Tell them the exact size and the weight on each axle (I guess with a tag the pressures will be the same on all four tyres - just give them the front and rear weights but tell them that there are two axles at the rear. I got mine weighed at a local weighbridge for 4 all in.)

Hi Havingfun,

Ours is a Hymer tag on the same chassis as yours. Our Hymer handbook says 4,5 bar for the rear tyres, and 5.5 bar for the fronts. This did seem to be excessive, and it does give a harsh ride. I have dropped 0.5 of a bar off of each, and it has made some difference. We are 4.5 tonne when fully loaded.

Your Stockport tip weighbridge are taking the urine, with regards to their charges. Try a search in the Database, >>Here<<

HTH,

Jock.

I'm intrigued,

Anywhere nice in mind, or are you looking more at "fulltiming"?

Jock, (hours away from another big adventure ).

not going fulltiming just yet,that is are dream for the future,we have had a few weekends away,and loved every minute,but the first big adventure for us is going to be five or six weeks to ireland,mostly wildcamping,we hope, and if all goes well,in the autum we want to go over on the ferry, and plan of action is which way the van is pointing when we drive off that is the way we are going.and we will come back when we get fedup.we have talked about all the places in europe we want to see,so nows the time,just retired,and times ours.i feel like a child again,bubbleling over with joy,waiting for christmas,somebody else on one of the threads talked about smiling,i do every time i look at the van.

Hi mags,

I have only just received your reply.

Go for it, and I hope it is everything that you want it to be. It's a great pastime.

Jock.

Get the axles weighted in full 'Holiday' mode full fuel, fresh water in tank, full gas bottles, tables and chairs, etc then you can use the TyreSafe Motorhome Tyre Inflation Pressure Advice - https://www.tyresafe.org/check-your-...es/motorhomes/ - to find what pressures they advise for the Tyres you have fitted on your MH.

With the tyres I have fitted - Continental (225/70 R 15C 112/110) - on my Pilote on a Ducato base and fully laden the recommended pressures are 47psi (3.2 bar) front and 61psi (4.2 bar) rear.

Much better ride for the last eight years than the teeth jarring 80 psi (5.5) shown on the door plate.
