Yes true. The XLR offers more carrying capacity, but 3,000lbs specifically in the separate garage area.

I am confused because I can't find an XLR with more carrying capacity, or as long a cargo box for that matter. Given your post, I'm sure I must be missing something somewhere. (That seems to be happening more frequently as I get older. ) Just to satisfy my curiosity, would you please post the model number(s) you are speaking of? I need all the help I can get!

Just out of curiosity, what did they say about the ramp capacity? Can that also handle the weight?

The XLR by Forest River has a new 5W out that I saw at Sturgis. It's called the 395AMP - 14 ft garage with 3,000 lb cargo capacity and total carrying capacity of 3,228 lbs. It looks like they make some other models with more total CCC. I did notice they use the same 5,000 lb tie downs Work and Play uses.

Dimurrw,
They didn't say anything one way or another but the ramp is actually not a real concern because as long as its not more than 96" which is the wheel base of the jeep I only one axle would be on it at any given time therefore only about 2000 lbs...but when I talked to them I told them excatly what I was looking for.
