Does anybody know if there has been that much change, or what is the correct number?
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.
