2016 Redhawk 29XK info

Hi All

I've been doing a lot of research for the last month plus. Reading forums, watching youtube etc. I've created list of potential MH's to look into and Redhawk is one of them. I went to a local small RV show recently and they had more of the MH's that I didn't want there. I did check them and still on my no-go list

In doing my reading seems that over weight MHs are somewhat common.
Jayco's MH's tend to be a bit beefy (can be relatively good thing) which then eats into the OCCC weight.

I'm no where near the 150lb person rate used in the calculations, won't touch DW as i have this thing about being killed lol
Anyway, we have 2 young adult kids that are in great shape and at or below the magic number. I've seen an OCCC weight where the 4 of us wipe out more than 75% of it. Not good.

I havent' come across a Redhawk 29XK locally yet. I was wondering if someone that has one can note what the OCCC is?


Thanks

I'd be surprised if you didn't have 2250-2500 pounds of OCCC in that Redhawk.

Hello, we have a 2016 29XK Redhawk. We have not been to the CAT scales yet, but the UVW weight listed on our Florida title is 11755 lbs.

I'm guessing they got that from Jayco and that it includes a tank of fuel and a 154 lb standard .gov driver.

So, if you take 14500 GVWR and subtract 11755 UVW (according to Florida title), then subtract sleeping capacity (7) of 1078 lbs (driver + 6 additional persons @ the .gov standard 154 lbs each) and 42 lbs of propane you get 1625 lbs CCC.

In our case, it's just me, DW and Corky the dog. Roughly 375 lbs sleeping capacity
So, our CCC should be around 2300 lbs give or take (14500-11755-375-42)

Of course if you carry on board water you have to subtract 8.3 pounds per gallon that you carry. We usually carry 10 gal, or so, in the tank for washing hands, etc. Another 80-100lbs to subtract.

All numbers above are based on a best guesstimate of the 11755 UVW being close. YMMV, and probably will with a trip to the CAT scales. We'll be going to the scales soon with full fuel and propane tank, loaded for camping (clothes, food, utensils, tools, water etc. We'll see what we get for gross weight.

Thanks Corky111111 UVW is great info! it is a good ball park to start considering viable purchase. I've read posting of people having to carry 1/3 of the water to help free up load. Saw one video that had a class B (i think) with a occc of 300lbs - not good. Great for pair of nudist lol.

(thinking out loud)

occc = GVWR minus UVW and full LP gas weight
so with your uvw of 11755 + LP 42 gallon @ 4.2 = 11931.4. Call it 12000
14500-12000 = 2500

water 32 +6 hot water, round up to 40 @ 8.3 = 332lbs
2168 for family and clothing, food, drinks, paper products etc. that is something i could be strategic with.

Not having leveling jacks helps! I assume you don't.

The OCCC of the rig includes the weight of the rig as off the factory line with a full tank of gas and a full tank of propane. No gear, no drivers, nothing else.

You can get this information off the yellow sticker on the driver's side door or door jamb (depends on where they put it). Recent federal regulations makes the location for new rigs easy (always the driver's door) and deciphering weight easy (as per the above).

Remember, you're talking many thousands of pounds so a CAT scale could vary by a little. Even 145 pounds is only 1% of the weight of the coach.

Perhaps more important is the weight bias front to back, and even side to side. Those you'd have to get your dealer to email Jayco about; I got that information too before I purchased but it had to come from the factory.
