I'm going to get my BJ74 registered in VA this afternoon.

The form asks for Empty Weight, Gross Weight and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

I've found 2 differing sets of numbers and I'm not sure about the terms here.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks! I found that data also.

I found the following numbers on an Expedition Portal thread:
Net Weight: 1,870 kg
Gross Weight: 2,380 kg
Payload: 400 (250) kg

So Net correlates to DMV's Empty Weight and Gross = Gross Weight; what is Gross Vehicle Weight Rating? Its also on this document.
