How much cargo capacity?

Unfortunately I gave all my paper work away to the buyer of my 5ver. What I would love to know, how much cargo capacity is a good amount on class C's?

I see the ones I'm interested in are about 2000 lbs. I know I have to remove our weight and of course water I carry in the fresh water tank.

Of course there are so many variables, but I was wondering how much weight can I expect to add with clothes, etc. And if 2000 will be enough. We are not full timers, just 1 month at a time.

We are usually very weight conscience so we don't want to plunge into an RV that just won't fit the bill.

Others will no doubt chime in here, but keep in mind that it's not just overall cargo capacity, but also the gross axle weight rating for each axle. Your potential rig might have plenty of overall capacity, but if the location of tanks and/or compartments isn't placed right, you could end up overloading front or rear axles. Our 32' C has very slim margins... You are right to do your research even though it is a PITA...

Frankly, if I were going to buy over again, at a 32' length I would have been better stepping up to an "A" with a heavier chassis.
