Rear load on class C

I've always wondered about the load capacity of a rear carrier on a class C. I now think I may have seen it.


Yes, that's scooter, a full size Harley, and a steel bbq w/stand.

What you have is a picture of an RV , who's owner has never been across a scale , and just doesn't care.

Well,
Not only is it possible that he's over the GAWR of the rear, but, the structure or, frame under many of the rear sections of Class Cs and, even some gas As, are EXTENDED from the original frame, to accommodate the additional length the coach builder want's to add. Not really a good scenario to be in.

Wow! You gotta wonder how well that thing steers and how long before parts of the back end of the motorhome start cracking and falling off. My wife looked at this and said why didn't he just get a trailer? I wonder what if anything was done to the frame and suspension to handle this much weight hanging that far back of the rear axle?
