Post Calling All Experts!

So Heres the Dilemma.

Have a 62 safari single axle, and need to have the GVM for a new registration Document here in Europe.

Dry weight, empty weight is Given on the specs as 3050lbs. Great!

Registration documents from USA have no weight listed. OMG.

But the authorties here need the total weight or GWM to reregister

Has anyone got this infomation? Or any tips on how to obtain it?

You might look for a truck scale. I am sure that there is such a thing in Europe. A building material dealer, or sand/gravel outfit will have these as drive-over type installations. That will give you the actual dry weight.
A 62 will have na early version of the torsion axle, if it still original. If you crawl under, you might find a rusty tag welded to it with specs on it. Careful rust removal will reveal the axle's weight rating. This, plus about 500 or so US lbs on the tongue, will give you the trailer's gross weight rating.
I hope this helps.

Uwe
