Yes, we were stopped and weighed in France and found to be overweight. Fined on the spot and allowed to carry on with our journey - still overweight! Ever since then we have been extremely aware of what we are carrying and distribution. Always have to be careful with rear axle. We weigh the van from time to time to be on the safe side. 'Payload' has become my mantra! We were lucky, get stopped in U.K. and if you are found to be overweight you have to discard stuff to get down to correct weight before they allow you to proceed - and fined if you are really overweight - I forget the percentage allowed before the fine kicks in.
I'm on the road again
Going places I have never been
Going places I may never see again
Just can't wait to be on the road again
