Big day for Bryan our camper tomorrow.

He's due to be weighed and I'm slightly nervious with him being a T28 and a fully loaded camper. I over looked this at the start as always thought it would be more than enough.

No roof just yet so all should be fine for now but hoping with only two of us we won't be close to the upper limit of a t28 once the roof (sca) gets fitted in the near future.

Will keep you posted, always good to know what they come in at.

Wish me luck guys haha

You should be fine, I have a fully converted T28 with a poptop and even fully loaded with no space left to stuff anything into and with all fuel and water tanks brimmed I had over 130kg left. Good luck

We weighed in at 2870kg fully loaded with everything we could conceivably take with us for a week (and some) - this included 3 bikes, 3 people, 2 dogs and all tanks full - with just the 2 of you, you should be fine.

Mine was 2520, full conversion with 2 people, Thule rack with 2 bikes, full diesel tank and shopping, but empty water tanks. You'll be fine.
Dont forget to also do both axles individually :)

Something else to consider, which will help explain some of the large variations we see in the weights of our campers, is the starting spec of the van, e.g. there is about 90kg difference in weight between a Startline 102ps Manual and a Highline 150ps DSG.

Thanks guys,

She weighed in at 2600kg..

That's a full conversion without a roof.

Both water and fuel brimming and 2 bikes on a tow bar rack and me and the Mrs weighing 65kg each. Includes about 2 weeks of cloths and all the other stuff.

So we are fine but will be getting close with a sca roof and awning perhaps, anyone know what they weigh actually?

Cheers

Roll out awnings such as Fiamma will add around 20kg, driveway awnings another 15-30 kg depending on what you go for - biggest weight gain will be the SCA roof - struggling to find any details re the net weight gain but it will be quite a lot (guessing around 30-50kg) - but you should still be well within the 200kg you have to play with (even if you do both put a few KGs on over Christmas :)).

Remember you will be losing some original roof when the new one is added.

You guys are brilliant, thanks for all your input.

I was concerned they may have weighted close to 150kg, but you forget just how heavy that is.

Just for anyone wondering here is the spec that came in at 2600kg

T6 150bhp TDI T28 DSG highline

Full tank of fuel
Cak 21L underslung water tank full
6.4kg underslung gas tank
Webasto heater
Webasto 49L fridge
Domestic twin hob cooker and sink

Evo furnature with over head lockers
Full vanshades blinds and splashback
Twin from seats
Tailgate
2 x bikes at 15kg each
atera strada dl3 bike carrier
Witter detachable tow bar
Redarc dc to dc charger

Full pots and pans, clothing and ready to go camping for 2 weeks.
17" Devonports

I hope that helps anyone in the future.

I tried to track down the SCA 194 weight today with difficulty. Best info I found was a company who normally ships 5 at a time on pallets and said the combined weight of all 5 was 500kg with packaging. So my guess is 100kg. As you say, minus the roof coming off I should be fine.

It is tight for anyone with kids etc perhaps but fine for us.

Hopefully this helps anyone in the future.

Thanks again guys
Paul
