Worst information I could have given DW after weighing the 4 corners is that we have about 750 lbs. of cushion on the rear axle. I think she's out shopping as I type this.

My DW believes that it's better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it. It's all about keeping her happy.

In '04 and '05 we went to Quartzsite. DW started buying rocks there. Didn't worry too much about the weight on the Dutch Star either as we had a few #'s left to go. With the Magna we're about 5,000#'s under max but I'm not letting her know!

This could be quite dangerous for some! We have a 33' 1998 Sea Breeze and as I read on someones post some where about this vintage and model, "I have storage for my storage"!! It's true as I think we would have a hard time filling all of the storage.

Whenever I go on a 2-week or 3-week trip. I just pack for one week. At the end of the week or beginning of the week, I just do laundry.

I keep some clothes and jackets in the RV. Saves time with packing.
