Can someone explain the difference here?

The sticker must be a mis-print. There is no way a 27' 5er is going to have a 12k gvwr unless it is custom made.
Heck our 42' sabre had a 12k yellow dry weight sticker with a 14,xxx gvwr. I don't remember exactly, but i thought our puma 295kbh was just a little over 10k gvwr

It was probably scaled after my DW loaded it...

check the VIN on your unit with the one on the sticker. I wonder if someone keyed in something wrong.

It looks like the tires and axles match the GVWR, but I agree that's pretty stout for a 27' TT. Does it have the big tires and axles under it?

Only I figure is this was a heavy duty axle option(I have read that that is an option in some cases) therefore it would increase the gross and cargo weight. I will try to find it again to get dry weight too. It would have been 3500 or 4000-4200 axles standard.

I will post if I can figure it out.

I found it.... I figure the RV dealer is tired of tire/suspension problems and upgrading all of these to 16" E tires with 6000# axles... Good idea. Near consecutive SN and app 7000# dry weight. Maybe mine got mixed up in there too. Hey I can dream!
