How much does your C Weigh?

Waht model do you have and how much does it weigh?
real world actual, not the rating......

I looked a few years back, now I'm re-thinking a C for my family of 5
What I remember from before was that I figured once I loaded it, I would be over, or nearly over my capacities.... but back then i was focusing on bunk houses
figuring a load......
my family
maybe a friend or two of my kids'
food, chairs, stuff.....
full propane
gasoline or diesel
some water in the tank
some greay and black water on board

I don't need a huge surplus, but I don't want to be constantly worried about it.

Now I'm thinking that maybe some of the non-bunkhouse models might be workable too.... so I'm wondering if anyone out there has weights they can share so I can get a little more familiar with the models and choices.......

Empty and allowable gross weights are listed in the brochures. Download them from the manufacturer's Web sites.

Thanks, but based on what I've seen the GVW and the GCVW ratings are listed, but not usually the empty......
But the empty isn't really what I'm after anyway, since it wouldn't show the options installed, etc..... & it's not clear to me what is included in those numbers and what isn't....

What I was hoping for is the real scaled weights, loaded as you drive down the road typically.....

Forest River weighs every motor home and puts the net cargo capacity on a label.

Oops sent too soon. Check the actual cargo capacity of a few at a dealer.

I'm right at or slightly above the GVWR at 11,030. It's a Solara 24S.
I have to really keep track of what I'm putting in the coach.

Wow, don't know how you guys keep it below the limit. I have a Forester 3051 with a 14,400 limit and can' get it below max weight. Weight for me is a real issue. Normally travel empty tanks and not more than 30 gal gas.

The Forester 305 looks like a nice unit. I am sure part of our lower loaded weight is the lack of any slides and the Coachmen Freelander 28QB is likely a little shorter than your unit.
Enjoy the camping season.
