Cargo carrying capacity of 2013 Sunseeker 3010DS

We are contemplating the purchase of a 2013 3010DS and we are trying to determine the cargo carrying capacity. In a brochure that, I believe, is from 2012 the 3010DS appears to be 2380 pounds, but in the current literature on the website it looks to be only 2100 pounds. Does anybody know if there has been that much change, or what is the correct number?

Remember it vary's according to the options added during assembly. The more goodies the less ccc you get. Check each unit, they aren't the same. I once had a fancy class C with hundreds of pounds (373) left for cargo!

I also noticed the changes between 2012 and 2013. Some floor plans went up, some went down. My 2012 3120 had a NCC of people and cargo at 2420lbs in the brochure and 2300 in 2013. When mine came in the sticker on it said 2018lbs. Considering my options, about 200 lbs for jacks, 100 lbs for the weight of the full body paint, and maybe another 100 lbs for the mandatory options and TV, it seems about right. The lower rating in 2013 for the 3120 seems to be at least in part due a different more robust couch and additional wardrobe storage in the bedroom.

With 4-5 people, a little water in the system, and supplies the big class Cs can reach their capacity limits pretty quickly.

Each and every unit is now weighed...so the ones in the brochure are more of an average (high average if I'm not mistaken). When it is weighed, the weights are printed on a yellow sticker and put on the coach door jamb. Look at one on a lot and it will give you a pretty good idea.
