How Much Do You Weigh?

Well I know that's an extremely personal question but it could help in many ways (pun intended) if we think about it.

I had Airstream One weighed today and was only off by about 10% on my guess.

Total Gross Weight with most all my stuff loaded and half fuel was: 12,000

Front axle: 4,280

Rear axle: 7,740

Now I have always figured the 28 Funeral Coach was lighter than the full build up of the other 28's but how much lighter am I than the rest?

How much do the other longer coaches weight?? Inquiring minds.....

I'll get the 81 Excella 280 weighed in the next few weeks. A lot easier to drive the motorhome back and forth on the Cat scales.

Wt. cost money to haul

It would be interesting to get a ball park figure (average) of the wt. that most folks haul excluding the wt. of the selected Airstream. Just, the wt. of the stuff we carry. It would give a better overall understanding and let you know if you were hauling an average amount of stuff. By looking at a few numbers you could see if you could add a few more things or perhaps it should be time to discard a few. I keep telling my better half that wt. cost money to hall.

Does This Bumper Make Our Butt Look Big?

Our 1974 Tradewind weighs 4202 pounds unloaded. Throw in a million pairs of shoes, water in the tank , enough food to outlast armageddon, and a Honda 3000is generator and we're thinking 5000 pounds.

No really, do you think the bumper makes our butts look big? Do you think we should change it? It's got to be the bumper!

The Silver Bullet weighs in at 16234 pounds with out water or supplies and my 195 pound body is standing by the sale person. Add the wife, myself, 500# of supplies, the cat and one Suzuki Vitia 4X4 and the GVW is somewhat above the 16500# shown on the headliner. And we wonder why we only get 6.5 mpg.
