lefaivre - You said that you have gotten weighed, but did you check the weighs against your GWAR Front & Rear ratings (on your sticker, in cabinet over the driver's seat).

Having a 360hp, your GWAR Rear is 19,000 lbs. But if your GWAR Front rating is only 10,400lbs and your tires are 255's, you should ask FR to upgrade your front to 12,000lbs and tires to 275's. They will probably be most happy to do it for you.

I don't see the model in your signature so that info is helpful. The over weight issue was mostly the RB model and only the Moho's with tile and the 4 door fridge. Just because you have 255's doesn't mean you have a issue. My best advice (has anyone said this) is to get a current weight. Wth t that it's just not possible to even guess as to whether or not you have an issue. I can say that when we unloaded or Moho to be weighed empty we removed 835 lbs of our stuff. That surprised me as I thought I would have had much more. I think that 835 would be a good average for what most put in a Moho to travel and camp.

Sorry it's taken so long to respond.
No, this is my loaded weight with about 1/3 tank of fresh water and gray and black tanks empty
