Buying 2013 27RKSS - Cargo Capacity low?
Just registered for this site. I am in the process of purchasing a new Salem 27RKSS. My wife and I love the floor plan, the way it looks etc. We originally went looking for a bunk house, but went inside this one and that was it. We already put money down on it and are supposed to be going tomorrow to sign all of the paperwork.
One thing that I am reading (almost too late of course, since I researched bunk houses before we went shopping) is the cargo carrying capacity of this trailer is only 1,327lbs, and it is making me question this decision a little. Everything else Salem is making has a higher rating. So several questions come to mind:
1. Why is the rating so low? Is it because the rear kitchen distributes the weight differently?
2. How "real" is this, and is this meant more for towing where things are bouncing around, or is this all the time, so if I have my family (2 adults one child) and some friends in the camper we risk damage and/or injury if the thing collapses?
Thanks in advance for any and all advice/input.
