My REV is Over Weight

I just weighed my 2016 REV with nothing in it at all, even gas hand on empty. The front axel was fine but I am 30 lbs over on rear axel with nothing in it. So if I add clothes and food it will be 200 to 250 over in the rear. Does that seem ok? Safe?

Leaks / retained water weight? Something is not right with that situation.

GVWR is 5291 rear axel, mine weighed 5320. I did forget 50 lbs I have in the storage in the back, charcoal, small tool box, etc. So without that I would be 5270, 21lbs under. No leaks, nothing wrong with unit. It is a 2016 RB.

Post the last 8 of the VIN, I can take a look at the weight sticker when it left. Something was obviously changed or the scale is off. Water tank is empty?

Do you have the scale sticker? who weighed it?

Could be scale is off some. There may be a gal or two water in tank, no more than that.

Unfortunately that was before we started digitizing everything, so I would have to pull hard copy of the sticker. if you are the original owner, it looks like Brian Meeks emailed that CCC sticker back on June of 2018 to a Ronnie Gee.

Yes that was me, the original owner. He mailed me a copy of the sticker that is on the door, not the CCC. Iwould love to see the CCC. Thats what I requested at the time. That would be a big help. Thank you!

Here is the CCC sticker.

As I recall, the Promaster was always a little closer on the rear...the front had plenty of capacity for whatever reason, so the more you can shift weight to the front the better. The RB had the water tank up front under the sofa which helps.

So overall, you have 986 lbs of CCC.

I think someone on here put a spare tire on the front (Was the Delco???) which shifted weight to the front. In later years...and maybe yours had this, we were using the Dynaride system from MORryde which raised the back end up, also pushing more weight to the front. Driver/passenger obviously does.

We also did some things when I got here to shed weight overall. Changing out the glass shower door to a lighter weight Arcadia which also gave more room in the shoulder area.
