What does.... actually mean?

Dry weight

The dry weight refers to the vehicle weight in standard condition, without driver and other equipment. It serves as the basis for calculating the individual weight of the fully equipped motorhome including the ordered options.

Mass in running order

The mass in running order is defined by Regulation (EU) No. 1230/2012 including basic equipment (driver 75 kg, 90 % fuel, 20 litre fresh water tank, one aluminium gas bottle and electrical connection cable) in the standard equipment. The mass in running order changes due to the installation of accessories and optional equipment. The additional weights of each optional equipment are listed in our price lists. Deviations in the weight specifications within a tolerance of 5 % are possible and permissible.

Technically permissible maximum laden mass

Is determined by the manufacturer and depends on the technical conditions of the vehicle, such as the brakes. It indicates the maximum weight a vehicle may weigh in real operation. In the registration certificate Part 1, it is in the F1 field. The F2 field indicates the maximum permissible mass in the country of registration. If you subtract the mass in running order from this, you get the real usable payload.

Axle load

The axle load indicates how much weight may be placed on the front and rear axles. The correct value can be found in the registration certificate part 1 in fields 7.1 and 7.2 or on the type plate.

Payload

The payload is understood to be the difference between the mass in running order (plus additional weight for options/packages) and the permissible total mass. It is available for passengers and luggage, taking into account the permissible axle load. It is reduced by the installation of accessories or optional equipment. The additional weights of each optional equipment are listed in our price lists.
