In case anyone is wondering...It appears they have resolved the weight issues at least in the 2015 models. We have a 2015 38RB - 340. Before a long trip, we had the basement loaded, fridge loaded, clothes, full of fuel, propane, and 1/3 tank of FW, plus me and the wife on board. The only thing we didn't have on board when we weighed is our two 60lb puppies, so we can add 120lbs to the below weights, they travel in the bunk beds so they would be added to the rear axle.
Steer Axle: 10,140
Rear Axle: 16,940 (17,060 with puppies)
Total Weight: 27,080 (27,200 with puppies)
2015 38RB has a 10,500 front axle and a 17,500 rear axle, for a GVWR of 28,000.
That leaves us 360lbs under on the front axle and 440lbs under on the rear...or 800lbs under GVWR!
