Tom:

Don't let him fool ya...he'll be fully loaded alright...I bet a dollar to doughnuts his Hops & Barley mix will outweigh a full freshwater tank, PLUS the full grey and black ones!

But that's why we like him!!!

And JA...got it!

If I go to the scale I'll know how far overweigted I am. I prefer the "I didn't know officer" method of weight distribution.

you are probably running just about right weight wise, aren't you? with that rig of yours. It seems like a good match.
How do you like that KZ ?

and Geof,
what kind of trailer are you pulling behind your Volvo ? Did you get that used (they run forever) or buy it as a new tow vehicle?
One of these days it would be interesting to get a tractor and build the perfect TV.

Mike,

Yeah I actually don't worry about the weight too much. Unless I really overload (which has been known to happen carrying a cord of wood to the desert) I have close to 1000lbs to spare on the truck.

Love the KZ! The 33P has the perfect amount of cargo and comfortable living space for me and the wife. It's a little longer than we really wanted but I'm learning to deal with it. Going to be cramming it into Carpenteria SB tonight.

Brant

And i know what you mean about the "little long".
We had a FB2200 for a couple years and just loved it. it was perfect for our offroading and we don't have a sandrail to haul around anyway. But i eventually wanted a slide, and the LE33 is the smallest LE that WW will 'slide'. I got to admit though, the room is nice. But i no longe feel like i'm traveling the John Muir trail with a backpack anymore, now i'm the spaceship Columbia.

have a great time at carpenteria !!

5'er was 11200 and my hitch was OK.
2nd Time I was loaded...
Full load 20300.(truck and rig)
Just a touch over.
