My Promaster 2500 is an oddball here, since it is a chassis-cab rather than a van, but, after adding an aluminum bed, a steel frame extension/crane support, and a 500# compact crane, mine weighs ~5,850# with me in it, according to the scale at the scrap yard.

Nearly done with my build. Extra chair, two beds, shower, 640w solar, 33 gallon water, 8.1 cu ft fridge, shower. Pretty full build. Not surprised I added just about 3000#.

My 3500 EXT was 7860 on my last weigh in, 3700 front and 4160 rear. This was with a half tank of fuel, only me in the cab, but carrying a lot of tools to complete my build. I think the build when completely finished and all the build tools out will be right around the same weight or a little less. The goal to be able to carry two people and all their stuff and stay under 8500 (so I can tow my 3500 pound Subaru behind and stay under the 11500 gcwr) or to be able to carry 5 people and all their stuff and stay under the 9500 gvwr. I will probably be completely finished with all the stuff I am redoing and ready to reweigh by the end of October. I'll weigh it with a full tank of fuel and my normal contents at that time.

Mine is a 159 Ext Diesel and last time I weighed it it was 9040 lbs. with full fuel, 100L of water, all of our gear for a week long trip, plus two full sized humans. 4440 front, 4600 rear. This was pre-covid so it's probably 9060 lbs. now!

Here is my weigh in “2019”

June 2019 Van weight

Front 1,610 kgs

Rear 1,840 kgs

Total 3,450kgs

Full fuel / Full water 30 gals / Grey tank empty

Full of gear

Driver Included but No Passenger


So 3,450kgs @ 2.2 = 7, 590 lbs

My prototype build (basic) weighed only 6226 lbs with (just) me in it, and about 20 gal of water and all the supplies, heading out on its inaugural trip in Summer 2019.

The front axle weighed 1630 Kg as reported on the gov't weigh scale. Rear was 1200. Total: 2830 Kg = 6226 lbs.

66858


I'm undergoing a rebuild now and there'll be a bit more weight as I'm looking to add more water capacity and I've already added 2 more batteries (total of 3).

My fuel economy is not great as it is and so I hope the weight doesn't increase too much.
