Talking How Much Money Could Your AS Hold?

I thought this might be fun math, (well, maybe not for the algebra haters). I'll go first.

Let's say you were excavating for a new pool and a storage barn for your dear AS, and you dug up piles and piles of money- crisp conveniently spendable $20 bills. The only way to transport these windfalls, would be in your AS, of course. How many twenties could you legally haul weight wise? (We're not addressing volume or square inches.)

My 2017 22' Bambi lists a GVWR at 4500 lbs, minus the dry base weight of 3634, which leaves 866 lbs. of payload. 640 twenty dollar bills weigh one pound. So, I could haul 554,240 twenties worth $11,084,800!

Not bad for a little Sport!

Now one of you stripped down and gutted 30' Sovereign owners is going to pull up and blow me off the road!

Curious about your weight number. Did you weigh your own cash (640 20s)? Seems 490 is the number. LINK

Are we calculating based upon the new Rainbow currency...I presume this is U.S.A. based paper.

640 was a number based on weighing and multiplying the old twenty's, without metal strip, multi color printing and possibly heaver paper. I would like to check the newer bills to verify, but if 490 proves to be correct, then modern money seems to have a greater weight to value ratio, (higher ratio between wt and value).

I don't know, but I want to get one of those drawers in my Airstream like the one Ben Affleck has in his in "The Accountant". The drawer with rolls of 100 dollar bills, Euros, and maybe a few gold coins too! I could use that!
