2014 Citation Sprinter, Kar Kaddy SS and 2014 Honda Crosstour weight issue?

I could use some advice from some owners or some similar Class B+ owners.

I have a 2014 Thor Citation Sprinter 24ST 25’9” .

Thor has the 2015 on their site same as this link

or the thor link 2015 Citation Sprinter Motorhomes: Class C RV by Thor Motor Coach

The GCWR is 15250 pounds and the GVWR is 11030 pounds. I weighed the RV and it was 10740 pounds so with my weight which I don’t know if it included it would be 10970. So 15250 minus 10970 is 4280. I have a 2010 Honda Crosstuur which I would love to have as a toad its curb weight is 3852. so 4280-3852 = 428.

I am going to buy a Kar Kaddy SS this week its weight its weight is 615 which is a – 187 pounds. We are planning a trip next month to Maine to see the leaves change, Mussels , Lobster and BEER!! The above weight does not include food in Fridge and two small dogs and cat maybe a few hundred pounds more who knows with provisions.

My question is finally how critical is the maximum weight the GCWR? Can it be over by 500-1000 pounds? I had a 250 Cargo Van back in the 80s with a well cargo trailer I know was over the max weight time to time.

I would love to here from other Class B+ owners that may be a tad over and their experiences.

Thanks for your input and expertise which im sure is more than mine

I guess also I lucked out on the Kar Kaddy SS with its breaking system I don’t need a break controller. I did read you need rear breaks for the toad if you go into Canada which were not doing this time.

Thanks Doug

You may want to get the Honda weighed and not rely on curb weight data. What will happen to your warranty if you're 500 - 1000 lbs overweight and you blow out your transmission?
