I have seen a 3.5 tonne for sale, I asked about the payload. The seller wasn't sure but sent me an image on a silver plate with what looks like weights stamped on it... Can anyone translate into lay terms please??
This was a conversion from a camper van so I'm not sure whether the weights would be accurate?

There are 4 weights listed

3500
5000
1- 1375
2- 2600

Thank you

They don't really tell you much. The 1&2 are most likely axel weights. You are looking for the actual current weight of the vehicle post conversion, they would get that by taking it to a weigh bridge.

1. Is total max weight-3500kg
2. Is train weight ( what it can weigh towing) -5000kg the combination.
3. Max weight on front axle-1375kg
4. Max weight on rear axle- 2600kg
First thing you do I get it weighed 3 times, front wheels only, both sets on wheels then rear wheels only.
Payload is 3500kg - what it weighs empty.
