It's only a paper exercise Ken, maybe have to Uprate your tyres though good luck with it.

Thank you for your enquiry. From the information provided about your vehicle, we should be able to cover your uprate tpo 3500kg. The post conversion weights on this model, after uprating, would be: Ax1 – 1750kg; Ax2 – 1900kg. The gross vehicle weight going to 3500kg. There may be a further option to increase the rear axle– 2000kg, subject to the correct tyres and an air assisted rear suspension.

I didn't need to send mine to Dvla, if your weight isn't stated on your V5 you don't need to notify them.
Is it just a paper chase for your concord Paul or do you need any modifications doing?

I have just sent for a new plate for mine to uprate the rear axle to 2050. I only need to go up an load idex on the tyres, the axle and brakes are the same as the standard 3500 van, makes you wonder why it was plated at 1750 for the rear axle and 3200 gross in the first place. SVTEC wanted 230 + vat to tell me someting  allready knew and to suppy a plate, so I did it myself.
