When we get our next van 2 things are crucial. A big rear lounge and a huge payload. autotrail arapaho with nearly 1100KG payload is my favorite at the moment. Im sure the springs are on the way out on our Kontiki and despite being just on the limit with the bike on the amount of miles and terrain that we cover is bound to take its toll at somepoint. I just want the same van but built more like a tank.

That's an awful lot to carry, wouldn't a trailer be a better option, unless of course it's used mainly for racing, and even the a converted 7.5t with tail lift (useful bench) might be even better.

Used for my family getaways and racing . Didn't want to go the trailer route . Drives perfectly when loaded up . The only downside is the suspension is a bit hard especially when not carrying a load .
BTW these R6 bikes are under 200kg . Race one probably 180kg

Hi

If your van has a ton payload do you know if they do a rear lounge model? Might be a contender for our next van if they do.

Phantom & Weighbridge

Hi,

Yes we're fortunate that West Yorkshire Joint Services Trading Standards have a free weighbridge at their offices at Gildersome just off the M62/M621/A62 junction south of Leeds.

Its open 24 hours but you don't get a ticket but it weighs axles and adds them up --- if you can get it to work. It usually does but sometimes one has to drive over the start sensor several times.

Once I've weighed us a couple of times you get to know what to watch for etc when we're loading up.

It does mean the wine has to travel as far forward as possible and with empty or near empty water tanks.

cheers alan
