OK, so I'm back from Empire, as soon as I saw it two things came to mind firstly it's bloody huge and secondly I know Fcuk all about RV's :D fortunately for me I know a man that does so I've aske @adi4 to go over it for me.

It's a lovely Motor but needs a fair few bits doing from what I could see and I'm sure Adi will find things I missed

The first and most important job of all will be removing the sticker from the back of it, I'd rather have a Volvo badge on the back than this

Just noticed on the MOT history for this RV an advisory that says "Kerbside weight appears to be very close to GVW" I didn't think weight was an issue with these biguns? The revenue weight is 11774 kg

Any idea what a 40 ft quad slide weighs (roughly)

I would suggest the revenue weight of 11774Kg is wrong for a 40ft quad slide. That’s about the same as a front engine maximum weight Workhorse chassis.

The revenue weight should be taken from the RV plate/sticker which is usually found behind the drivers seat. Ask James for a photo. It will also have the date of manufacture on it. Check that as well and then search brochure archives for the weight/specifications in the brochure.

Yes, No, who knows. You are dealing with DVLA.

My V5 was incorrect but I had the RV spec sheet with Vin number, weights etc. Took about a month.

If you don’t have the original documents the process will be arduous.

You can check the V5 revenue weight on DVLA website.
