    depends what one you have, payload is either 550kg or 595kg

    aslo depends what equipment you carry, ladders etc,

    if you are just water fed pole, no ladders you could get away with a 300-350lt tank tops

    i was going to say 300L. dont ever risk going over weight coz they catch you they will chuck the book at ya mate. i did in my berlingo a few yrs ago. i had 500L in my van and water barrels aswell. was stupid and dangerous of me.

    OW ok need the engine size then bud, i am assuming its the older shape?

    The changed the same in 2010! LOL!

    300L will do a fairly good day,

    Depending on engine size, payloads go all the way up to 800kg

    Here is a picture, prob easier!

    I did remove that part, as you may have guessed right.

    But if you told him it was 595kg he could base his system on your advice. When in fact he may have an 800kg payload!

    with payloads do you count the weight of the drivers and passengers? or just the weight you can put in the back?

    payload is total weight you add to van.

    So passengers, drivers, fuel and anything else you add has to be added.

    A manufacture cannot allow for people like me (fat and over weight!)
