Default Weighed the Paj yesterday

Got away for the weekend chasing some snow (will post another thread on the trip) and pulled into a weighbridge on the way back.

We were packed for 2 nights camping with recovery gear, chains, swags etc. In addition to the items in my sig there is now also a winch up front. 2/3 full of diesel and me and my son (11 yrs).

We came in at 2820kg total, 1300 front axle, 1520 rear axle. The Triton we were with was the same total at 2820 (freaky I know) and 1320 front, 1500 rear.

That is 210 below the GVM of 3030kg. The Triton was only 110 below GVM of 2930kg. Like most say, I didn't realise we'd be quite so heavy. Really keen to weigh the old girl with the camper on (there would be less gear in the car as well).

Cheers,
James

Same here.

2700kg with 1/2 tank of fuel, me and an empty fridge.

Not much weight left to go away camping!

Full fridge, swag, food, water and cooking stuff, misuses, 2x big dogs and a full tank of fuel and a spare jerry would easily be 300kg.

Axis, then add the ball weight to the rear wheel weight and you are close to the margin.

I know. And the wife and daughter as well!! There should be less weight in the Paj for a camper trip though (that might be wishful thinking).

Cheers,
James
