That is the dry weight of my QBOK, I'm no expert but I have a hard time believing a TBOK is the same weight regardless of the options.

Let's just hope a few workers were still inside when they weighed it!

That amount of weight capacity is less than my Diamond Edition Rockwood. I have 1361 lbs. This includes spare tire, push out awnings and Diamond edition options.

This sounds a a lot like Sierra issues with low CCC.

I'll maybe get it scaled after work today. Sorry I said the four letter word.... Luckily, there's an ag scale in town and it stays on all the time. Gotta love Midwest, small town living!

I figured with the added slide toppers, propane, battery, and any water, I'm probably already at gvrw if the stickers are right. that'd be a bad deal. I'll report scale weights when I get there.

Got a reply from my dealer, with a string of forwarded emails on it. Basically the sticker can't be correct, and here is the factories response;

Gary,
It looks like somebody put the wrong sticker on this unit. I show cargo carrying capacity at 3658 lbs. unit dry weight at 10215 lbs. So the unit is fine just labeled wrong
