THAT can't be right can it ?
My 30 lb. propane tanks weigh 54 lbs. each when full. If you are not going to be dry camping, then you probably won't be carrying 35 gallons of water down the road. I fill our tank so the 1/3 light just cuts on before traveling, unless we are planning on dry camping. That amount allows us to flush the toilet and wash our hands, and would probably be enough water for an unexpected stay at Walmart.
You are correct that the 2604 is probably going to weigh 5600 lbs. from the factory, so a 1100 lb. cargo capacity is not a lot if you plan to full time. For comparison, our SV 263 has a cargo capacity of 2900 lbs.
