    Looking at fitting a 500L tank in this van.

    Its the lager pay load at 785kg, i would fill to 450L

    So with my maths

    450kg Water
    30kg for tank
    15kg for frame
    5kg pump
    15kg hose reel
    12kg backpack and trolley
    5kg roof bars
    5kg ladders
    15kg battery
    115kg me
    20kg cones
    10kg ply lined
    35kg fuel
    5kg Poles and heads
    10kg Spares

    Total so far is 747kg - What do you think guys, too dangerous as in the morning it will be close to payload.

    My thinking has been some roads are 60mph, doesnt mean you can do 60mph safely.

    747kg in a small van!!!!!

    Also have i forgotten anything ?

    That's to much,I've a lovely combo with a 350l and been advised any more could be risky.still pulls well with maximum payload but I wouldn't want a 500 in it.

    I used to have a 500l tank in a combo, it isn`t good, that was the payload your thinking of too..

    First thing in the morning its bad also you`ll have to make sure the tyres you buy a rated to the above weight....
