Ron, rather than turn this into yet another weight thread harangue,
at the end of the day, it's your money, your family and your choice. You can choose to run within the manufacturer's ratings or to ignore them. All I can do is to help you work through the numbers if you choose to run within the ratings. What you do from this point is up to you.
Best of luck to you on your decision.
