GVWR of TT

I just realized I have been overloading my TT's GVWR. It never even crossed my mind that the GVWR included people in the TT! My GVWR of my 2012 32BHDS is 10,200lb. Fully loaded the TT weighs 9,195 w/water propane battery etc. That only gives me 1005lb for people! How is it supposed to sleep 10 people unless they all weigh 100lb. Am I the only one that didn't know this?

I am under the impression TT GVWR pertains to towing weight, not weight when parked, leveled and stabilizers down.

That's what I thought too, intil I read this on the Jayco.com website.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR): GVWR means the maximum permissible weight of the trailer, including the UVW plus passengers, personal items, all cargo, fluids, options and dealer-installed accessories. The GVWR is equal to or greater than the sum of the UVW and the CCC.

That refers ONLY to when the vehicle is going down the highway...

That would seem kinda funny since people aren't allowed to be in a TT while going down the highway. I believe it has to do with max weight of axles and tires.

So I can overload my Pick-ups GVWR as long as it's not moving?

I think you will find, the Jayco manuals have much cut and paste between the various models, and the people thing would be applicable to a Greyhawk motorhome when traveling down the road. When parked, it doesn't apply.

So there is not a max weight if parked?

In theory, there will be a maximum static load, something much more than the published GVWR. When bouncing down the highway, there are much greater dynamic loads on the frame, axles and wheels than you would ever experience when sitting still at a campsite with the stabilizer jacks deployed. The GVWR is the load it will carry while in motion.

What a relief, that's cool because I thought I was going to have to lose weight! LOL At 260lb I thought I was taking up 2 1/2 peoples spots!
