I'm not overloaded and do use the scales but with just normal camping gear and 30 gallons of water, I'm within 200 lbs of each axle. That's closer than I'd like to be. I'd also pay extra for some extra TLC in the construction process if it would yield better construction and fewer mistakes.
No not really. What I said still stands. For my line/floor plan the evo has the lowest CCC, then the grey wolf, then the vengeance. All three have the exact floor plan by forest river and the main differences are the CCCs. A lot of others are the same.
I was looking at a north trial and it had the exact same floor plan too but the capacity of the fresh water was only 40, the FR Evo has a 75 capacity and the extra CCCs for the water. That's why I went with the bigger capability and got the Evo even though the NT was cheaper.
Not really a soap box but you can find a similar floor plan with different stages of comforts and CCCs and then the price goes up accordingly.
I just think a lot of people just buy the floor plan but don't look at the capability and then get upset when something goes wrong because they don't realize the weights.
It's the same with trucks and SUVs, people hook up a long and heavy raider to an SUV and they get a squishy ride and then we all say remove the p rates tires. Then they get mad and say my tires are new and why didn't they just put st/lt in the first place. They didn't put the tires on there because the suv wasn't designed to carry that load.
Or you buy a folding chair and it's designed for 200 pounds. You weigh 250 and it works for awhile but after about 6 months of use the chair weakens and breaks the next time you sit in it. You're clearly over the states max but blame the chair saying they should have used heavy duty stitching.
The bottom line is you as the end user have to know and understand the limit and if you go over the limit you have to expect a failure at some
Point. The limits are clearly stated.
