I will only be using it to move a few small classics, as well as the mk2 swb transit I am picking up, my last one weighed 1890kgs with a full steel bed, this will be much lighter as using Ally punched decking for the deck to drive up, from what I can find the swb mk2 transit is around 1450kgs so will be under the 3500 gks gross weight
