When we purchased our 21 foot van with tare of 2450Kg in June 2001the ball weight although not weighed was very low. Even fully loaded I was able to left the front a little by hand. In September we had misfortune to have it get into an uncontolable sway and it rolled onto its side. After it had been repaired we moved drinking water tank to front and 4 batteries from above weels to under bed at front. It now has about 200 kg on ball and gross when 5 water tanks are full is about 3200kg. It now tows very well behind F250 with weight distribution hitch.
