Got a flat only to realise there is no jack under the seat. What I thought was a jack was a spare fire extinguisher. Consulted Just Kampers & they advised a trolley Jack. Anybody know the weight of our vans? I'm guessig it's on the site somewhere but can't find it.
Cheers Folks

It's about 1300Kg plus the internal fittings. I'm guessing you are going to be OK with a 2 tonne trolley jack, but best get the advice of someone who uses one with their van.

As Voyager says, unladen weight as it comes from Brazil is 1259 kg, maximum permissible gross weight is 2300 kg...so somewhere in between. (weight allowed on front axle 995 kg and back axle 1320 kg).

For roadside use a 2 ton jack looks ok. I carry a 2 ton bottle jack and foldable wheel chocks as well as the supplied jack for emergencies as they are easy to store, something like this. It's a bit of a trade off between sturdiness and space, but better than nothing.

https://www.sgs-engineering.com/wcs01-folding-steel-wheel-chocks (they also do jacks)

If you are thinking of working underneath, good quality axle stands, proper wheel chocks and probably a bigger jack for safety..... I'm a bit belt and braces Smile
