2014 Hyperlite 24HFS GVW?
I am in need of a toyhauler to carry my new CanAm Maverick and family of 4.
Because of the length of the Maverick SxS, I have narrowed it down to the 24HFS. The problem is, the weight of the Maverick (1,500 lbs), gear, water, etc. I am probably going to add around 2,800 lbs to the empty dry weight of the camper. According to the Hyperlite Brochure, the 24HFS has a carring capacity of just 2,522 lbs. Now, the 2013 brochure states that if the Extreme weather package (-EP) is added, then the carrying capacity will be 3,536. I am assuming, based on the '13 brochure, that the increased sized of the frame to 8" also increased the GVWR. I can not see any difference in the '13 and '14 year models. I have talked to several dealers about the GVWR of the '14 24HFS models with the Extreme Weather Package to see if the GVWR is greater. Some say yes, but the carrying capacity is the same and others say that the EP package actually takes 300lbs away from the carrying capacity.
I can not find another toyhauler out there that is decent quality that will fit our needs and can be towed by an Ecoboost F-150.
I would really like to talk with someone at the factory to get a confirmation before ordering a new camper I can't use. The dealers I have talked to are probably not getting the right help at the factory and don't really care.
Does anyone have experience with this issue?
