I agree - of course don't let the weight police hear me say that!. It does tell me to forget about having levelers installed. I will travel with less fresh water, though. We only need enough for flushing toilet; we keep bottled water for drinking and cooking.

Only other thing we're considering is solar panels (oh, and Bilstein shocks), and I suspect a solar system is going to add 30-35lbs to base weight. I think I can live with that.

SWMBO "thinks" she needs to go on a diet! However, at 5'11" I think 155 is about right. Now, as for me and the dog...
