Question - GVW of 1979 30' Southwind

I just registered to this website.

I am buying a 1979 30" Southwind and need to know the Gross Vehicle Weight.
Anybody know this?
Yes, the roof leaked and the ceiling has to be fixed.
Any ideas?

Can't answer your questions, but welcome to the forum. Many happy and safe miles.

PS - Might check with the manufacture if no one on the forum has your answers.

In many cases the GVWR is pretty much the maximum load that can be carried by the tires (the axles, etc., are usually not the weak point). Obviously I don't know every coach out there, but it's at least a starting point and certainly the *maximum* you can be at in any case.
