The issue was design and engineering.

Bling was added to attract buyers for sales.

Not enough axle was included to keep prices down and attract buyers for sale.

Unfortunately too much bling and not enough axle.

2017. Bling reduced and axle kept at 17,000.

Agreed on the "not enough axle" but the changes that really put on the weight weren't so much bling but rather needed structural improvements. The STAR foundation and the new HWH slide both eliminate the one sore spot on my 2015 Ventana - the FWS/flex.

But in the end, without improving the chassis, I'd take my 2015 FWS and the chassis flex over woefully inadequate CCC.

Now a 2017 DS 4018 with a 17K axle and the DW and I will be having some "discussions". LOL
