Hi can anybody help me translate my Hymer VIN plate? I'm planning our trip to Italy later this year and having read some of the other topics I've realised I need to know my vehicle weight limits. I've looked on the VIN plate and there are 3 sections that have kg mentioned but they are in abbreviated German so I'm not sure if I've translated them correctly. Can anyone help? they read like this:
Zul GesGW 2820kg
Zul 1. 1500kg
Achsl 2. 1635kg

I think the first one is the maximum gross weight but I'm really not sure about the other 2?
Hope you can help?
Thanks
Sam

The second and third weights are the max axle weights for the vehicle.

Yes, front axle first then the rear. I find it amusing that our caravan, which is a single axle caravan, still lists weights for two axles, I presume my front axle is the jockey wheel!
