Adria Rear Axle loading
Having just swapped my Pilote Explorateur for a Coral Platinum, I'm raring to go to smaller places that I simply could not go with the 6 wheeler.
Can anyone help with a question about the rear axle loading? The label says that I can't load the "boot" with more than 150 kgs. Is that with a full water tank and waste tank or not? i.e. if I'm not carrying loads of water, can I load the boot with more? I accept that I can't trade off 100 litres of water for 100 kgs of extra wine in the boot because of the overhang lever but...? How did the manufacturers come to 150 kgs. That must have been the worst case scenario. I don't really want to keep going back to the public weighbridge to check the axle loading if someone knows the secret.
On delivery the vehicle weighed 3040. I've added an Oyster and some other small bits including a microwave (yes - I've fitted a tiny one in an overhead locker). If I can't load more in the boot I'm not sure where the remaining 240-ish Kgs can go as there's not much "between axle" storage space.
