You would be surprised. We do mostly 3 night camping and when weighed, we added 2k lbs. Luckily ours has a 3k capacity.

I agree it doesn't take long or much to get heavy. I started paying more attention to weight mid summer, DW makes sweet potato casserole when we camp with friends is a group. She buys all of the ingredients each time. About July I was looking for something in the kitchen and found 14 bags of brown sugar all half used. That totals 7lbs. When you start looking at things and breaking it down like that it gets scary. Weekend for a family of 4 we put around 50lbs of food, water, & pop in the camper. It adds up faster than you think. If your filling your water tank then it you lose available carrying capacity real fast.
