The 23SS is at around 6350 GVWR. There's one less slide.
Hmm, maybe I should have the DW take a look at this floorplan and see what she thinks. Thanks for the info!

We love our F150 Ecoboost Lariat-full tow package that can't be beat! We have a competition 5er with 7800 GVWR. No problems after over 5,000 tow miles including GA mountains. Hitting the Blue Ridge Parkway this weekend. We'll report back!

Ok I'm confused about some pics the dealer sent me on a 23ss. Yellow sticker dry says 4236 with cargo cap of 2169lbs. But then he sent me another pic of the GVWR and it says 4805 lbs. Why does that not seem right?

Attached are pics:





VIN #s are even different.

The VIN #s are different- that's not the same camper.

i think the yellow sticker weight is fine to start with, unless you want to take it to the scales yourself.
the yellow sticker weight is the next best thing. it's not a bogus brochure or website number.

but you need to know that it doesn't include the weights of the battery, propane, water or cargo.
or anything else you have the dealer add on.

My subtraction is way off !!! I will make a correction.
