French B category licence is limited to 3500Kg.  If you have an English licence it may be valid up to 7500Kg (depending when you passed your test) When you exchange your English licence for a French licence you can request to keep your heavier entitlement but it will require a medical at the time and at each subsequent renewal.

If you google "permis de conduire categoires" it will show all the categoreies and limits. My french licence and the site mentioned both state the weight limit for category B is 3500kg.

I believe there are restrictions applied to anyone over 70 years.  I think the maximum weight is then 3.5 tons.

It very much depends on the weight of your motorhome.
