What does T26, T27, T28, T30, T32 mean on my VW Transporter?
Its a commonly asked question in the Dubbed Out Community. And its a good question to ask. Especially if you’re planning on converting your van to a campervan. In short, it relates to the gross weight of your van.
The numbers T26, T27, T28, T30, and T32 on a Volkswagen Transporter represent the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the vehicle. This is the maximum weight that the van can weigh when fully loaded, including passengers, cargo, and fuel. Each number corresponds to a different weight category, with T26 and T27 representing the lowest weight categories, typically used for smaller vans. T28 and T30 represent medium-weight cargo vans, while T32 represents the highest weight category, typically used for larger, heavier vehicles. Owners of commercial vans must comply with weight regulations, so it is important to choose a van with a suitable GVW for one’s intended usage. It is also important to note that the number does not indicate the payload capacity, as different vans may have different payload limits despite having the same weight category.
