How heavy is Charlie?

After leaving home this morning we took the Landy over the weighbridge to see what we’re sitting on fully loaded.

It’s 3450kg! Rated GVM of a 110 Defender is 3050kg.
From the factory the 110 is about 1870kg kerb weight so we’ve got approx 1600kg load on board.

This is fully loaded with water tanks full, fuel, full fridge, two spare wheels, tools, firewood, stove/kitchen, rooftop tent and loads of canned food etc…

It is quite interesting to know what our touring weight is. I can guarantee there would be a lot of people out there touring overweight especially some of the bigger heavier four wheel drives.
