There should be a VIN plate somewhere on the vehicle which has that kind of information. I'm guessing with a van cutaway like that it's on the driver door jamb.

Alternately, you can run the VIN through this decoder and it should give you the GVWR, which is effectively the max load weight rating.

With the VIN decoders I find on Google I don't get to the searched data ... Maybe that on the forum is a correct link with the 'Technical Max Mass' info

not yet, I need the 'technical max mass' to get my bus approved in the Netherlands. This has to do with the regulations in the Netherlands. So I need the official GM (GMC) 'technical max mass' data ....

In the Netherlands (Europe) you need a truck driver's license if your motorhome comes over 3500 kg (7716.17 lbs) in terms of weight.

My school bus including decor comes up here. So what I am looking for to the official information that this schoolbus / GMC-van can have.

If the official mass is higher, I can legally increase the 'technical max mass' data and I don't need a truck driver's license. I know this is typically something for the Netherlands ... The land of the control .... sometimes ok but now it turns through but I have to do with it.

I received this internet link by gm
