Thanks for the info.

My main thought was to use the info to decide if luxury/residential options were worth the weight... Things like full tile vs carpet in the bedroom. If the tile is 500lbs... might stick with carpet... Dumb example as the bed takes up most of the floor space, but you get the idea. I'll be checking the door jambs....

[QUOTE=bclemens;1845286]The weights are all over the board depending on options. For instance...what do I put on the brochure? a 36DS with no options 4x2 or 36DS with all options and 4x4 for a worse case scenario? In the end....every vehicle is weighed, subtracted from the GVWR and CCC posted. Yellow sticker on the driver side jamb of the cab door in most cases.

I know you are tired of answering this question but the more I think I understand it the more age is creeping in and I feel confused:

So what is the GVWR of the I5 4x4 DS? Isn't the RAM weight rating or max capacity (GAWR) of 7,250 front axle and 13,500 rear axle, for total of 20,750 lbs? Isn't 20,750 the most my coach can weigh with all it's stuff and all the fluids and people, everything? So if I don't weigh more than 20,750 lbs I'm OK and within the RAM axle weight ratings? My sticker says 'Dry Weight 17,656' lbs. with a CCC of 606 lbs.

No...axle rating is axle rating, does not really dictate GVWR.

GVWR for the Ram 5500 is 19,500lbs.

What sticker are you lookin at??? I'm looking at the photo copy of your sticker and it says the CCC is 1396.

I know they have weighed a few and forgot to take out the fresh water....but I think we caught those as I know what the weights should be.

Even a dry weight of 17,656...for the CCC you would only add the fuel tank and the propane tank. Which would leave more than 606.

So the most I can weigh is 19,500 lbs? Mine has a full tank of water, don't know if you did that or the dealer filled it, maybe you all weighed it with the water in? The propane tank was full.

I weighed in at 7,040 front, 12,200 rear, that's with me on board and most everything I travel with.

Here are the only stickers on the door jam that have weight, the yellow one says I have a CCC of 275kg:

That is correct. 19,500 is the most you can weigh. It looks like if you are loaded, you are good. That is the Canadian sticker...both the US and Canada should be on there somewhere. Canada, they list the CCC WITH a full tank of water already. The US CCC is without fresh water. I typically only travel with half tank, fill when I get to the site.

I can't find that sticker on the left but I do have the white one on the right. And keep it under 19,500 lbs. Not a problem.

Found it. Joe pointed it out to me, it's on the coach door. 1,396 CCC. Like I said I'm going to load for this trip then go to the scales.
