Katana Pilot, I too am a private pilot. I would not fly any aircraft without balance and weights, but road-bound vehicles come with certain assumptions. If they seat five, they will take all their luggage. My RAM 1500 is a given at a half ton load, but never think about having a couple of fatties in the front, so it seems to me that if a road vehicle can sleep six people, then it goes without saying that Mom, Dad and the kids can all bring their toys and be able to sit and eat outdoors with everything that is required to make that happen - for at least two days and nights.
I was totally caught off guard by this restriction. We really like the unit, but it looks like we can do that in our Subaru Outback bringing a tent. Or, maybe we can't because I have never thought to look at its GVWR.
