Hi
Looked through lots of posts about this, but can someone please tell me ALL implications of replating motorhomes from 3500 to say 3850kg to increase payload?
ie speed limits and toll charges UK/abroad
Also road tax and what happens if u have C1 licence with pre 1997 test when you get to age 70?

Thanks

asked the same questions myself, and here's the answer l got.
1) Replating:- I tried to replate mine from 3200 to 3500 myself, it was a complete nightmare. so I employed a company to do it and it cost me £314.00 it took a month the best money I ever spent.
2) C1 Licence:- I believe when you turn 70 you automatically revert to a 3500 licence unless you have a medical every year, couldn't be bothered with the hassle. also, anyone after 1997 will not get a C1 Licence so fewer buyers if l sell.

Implications too many to cover through forum posts. Suggest you have a look at SV Tech's website. Increasing the overall weight does not increase the load rating on each axle. To do this you may need wider tyres, bigger wheels and semi air suspension. Toll charges vary dependng on whether the fee is based on weight or height.

I see to many 3.5 ton restrictions on roads while we are in France , we like the out of the way spots little villages etc and would not like to be banned from them so I would stick to the 3.5T myself. Have fun with your van and stay with the limit you go for. :)
