Thank you! Unless it was a type,tThat appears to be the case! I added all the dry weights and cargo weights for each of the models and they do come out to be about the same. 36fws is the heaviest (at 13,250, so it can't take as much cargo. What a shame!! Such a huge "house" that can't carry much!
2009 was the first year they made the full wall slide model. I guess they did not change the axles for this model that year.
In 2010, the cargo capacity increased by 1,000 lbs (2,749), so I would think that that would be a better rig.
However...I don't know how much people carry to live full-time for two retired folks with some hobbies....that would be good to know...an average weight that people generally carry for fulltiming.
I wrote the carriage forum, and they wrote me back saying that potential owners CAN join...just to set the record straight.
