    I was wondering if anyone out there might know the tare and gross weight of a 76 dual cab. I was thinking of purchasing a slide on camper but have no idea of the weight I can carry. I was assuming a ton but I don't know.

    Check your compliance plate for weights on it.

    Tare could be around 1200kg and GVW 2300kg ?????

    That would be interesting. Lots of cab space and a bed to boot. First step is a doozy without a ladder!

    as @KahunaKombi :rolleyes: mentions is about correct. My 76 single cab has 1180 kg tare weight and GVW 2300 kg by the book double cab is also very similar.

    From my 1978 owners manual

    DC / SC gross - 2300kg; front axle 1010, rear 1300
    Payload 1005 kg - the book notes when carrying passengers reduce load accordingly.

    Just while I'm at it:
    manual towing - 1200kg braked; 600kg unbraked; towball load 50kg (all variants)
    and just to be technical about the listed Max and cruising speed
    Manual
    Microbus/kombi - 127 kph (122 Auto)
    SC / DC - 123kph (120 auto)
    Hi-topper - 124 kph (120 auto)
    SC/DC with cover - 120 kph (116 auto)

    Amazing they bothered stipulating difference of 1 kph at those speeds...

    Volkswagon always tells the truth?

    I 99% sure Kahuna is on the money T1200 & GVW 2300.
    I'll check when I get a chance.

    Not sure what "A" stands for, but I believe it's the GVW.
