Max Capacity

This may seem like a strange question, but one I have never worried about in the past. We had narrowed our selection to a FC 23FB or a 25 rear twins. I've already heard the pro's and con's of each unit but I have another interesting question.

Looking at the weight carrying capacity of a FC 23FB I could reach that amount very easily while Boondocking just by having our normal amount of goodies and 4 people inside the unit. There is some extra leeway with the 25 which could have additional people in it.

The reason I ask is, we occasionally host a coffee club while boondocking and usually have 11 to 12 people at any one time in our 21' Toy Hauler. That's not an issue because I can have about 3,500 lbs in it before my max carrying capacity is reached.

Should this be a big concern? I know I can't get that many in either unit but I'm afraid we'll really limit the people we can have in our AS at any one time.

What are your thoughts? Thanks ahead of time for your response.

Are you talking about capacity while parked or on the road? Max weight capacity is not an issue sitting still.

.

Why would 11 or 12 people want to be inside a travel trailer? Is the weather bad? Bugs? I don't think I've ever had more than 6 people in my unit at the same time, and that was only to show them the interior. Don't you and your friends prefer to be outside?
