Wow, just got the call from our salesman last night. Our trailer is at the dealership. Delivered about 3 weeks early. This is great news. Unfortunately we are not able to go get it till the 19th. Dang work always gets in the way. But just knowing It is almost home is great news. Now have enough to time to rig it out for our Yosemite trip in May.

I know a lot of people asked me why didn't I just wait to move the stuff from one trailer to another when we picked it up. It was part of my devious plan to empty it out before. Now my wife has seen the amount of stuff we had in it so I'm hoping it won't all go back.. At least for a while.

Good plan. That's what I'm hoping to.

I did the same thing. I still have 4 big tubs of stuff from the old that didn't go in the new. Unfortunately the DW decided we needed 'new' things for the new trailer.

If you want to really upset yourself weigh all the stuff you took out! We had taken out "all" of our stuff prior to going to storage then when we ordered new unit we went to storage building to clean it out. Two pickup loads later it was empty. About June I kept telling my wife that we were over weight. So for kicks I weighed all the stuff that came out in the clean out. Those "few" items weighed in around 1200 lbs so given the fact that our trailer has a 1400 lb capacity I know I was over weight. The hard part is explaining to the wife and kids that we can't load as much "essential" stuff in the new one when we get it.

What do you suppose the bulk of the weight came from?

About 350 lbs of outside cooking items. Got that down to 48 going into new camper as those were the only items we used anyway!

Crazy. I can't imagine I have anything in that range. When I moved everything from my travel trailer to my fifth wheel, it was definitely alot of stuff and took a solid hour, just to move it all, but most everything was pretty light. Pots, pans, comforters, blankets, pillows, DVDs, bathroom and bedroom stuff was the bulk. The lower storage was a small grill, table, 4 folding chairs, and several setup and breakdown boxes plus all the spare junk I take "just in case". Can't imagine all of it weighing more than 500-600lbs combined.
