Carrying Capacity

We have been planning on full timing in a TH. We have two full size Harley cruisers that we will put in the garage, combined weight of about 1800 lbs. We also primarily boondock which means we need to be fully loaded with supplies, genny, water etc.

Is this possible given the combined weights of our "stuff"? It seems we will greatly exceed the carrying capacity of any TH I have spec'd so far.

A scale is your best friend! Weigh the unit somewhere completely empty of "stuff" and a full tank of gas. Starting adding and subtracting based upon your manufacturers GCCC UVW and GVWR. You can weigh things on a home scale as you load them, or load up and go get it weighed.. really the only choices you have without "guessing".

Scale! Numbers tell all!

My bumper pull has a Max Gross of 11,200 lbs. It weighs in at 9,000 with 1 bike, ready to travel (food in fridge, clothes in closet, kitchen equipped, ect.). Garage area has 2,000lb capacity, and the bike is 800 lbs. I can add 1,200 lbs just in the garage area, and 2,200 lbs total before getting to my max right now. If I were to fill my water tank, it would be 80 gallons of fresh water @ 640 lbs leaves 1560 lbs of stuff still!
