    You have a 595kg payload

    So with a 300L tank and frame (300kg Water - 15kg frame - 25kg tank) = 340kg

    595kg - 340kg = 255kg spare.

    Allowing for the next step (you and fuel) I will put your weight at 95kg (15 stone and say half a tank of fuel 30kg

    255kg - 95kg - 30kg = 130kg spare

    so with your 130kg spare you need to look at. Poles/ladders/cones/roof rack/pump/battery/trolley/hose reel etc.

    If it was me (i have a combo)

    I would look at a 350L or 400L tank BUT dont fill it to the top!

    Trying to get exactly 300L will be a pain, at least with a 400 tank you have a 100L spare incase you over fill. You couldnt really run with 400L as prob be overweight!

    Most combo models have either a 1700 or 2000 total gross weight.

    With your engine. It will be either a 595,600 or a
    785.

    They also did a 500 payload 1.7 but that was a crew van.

    Dig out your logbook and look for 1700 or 2000 :)
