I am aware of the weight of H2O so I don’t travel with much onboard now nor would I plan on doing so in the future.
My wife noticed that the passenger leg room of the E chassis was tighter and somewhat offset as compared to the F. Does anyone find that to be a problem on the long hauls?
Thanks in advance.
We also sized down from a diesel pusher to a few others (5th wheels and bumper pull Airstreams) and now to our Class C. Couldn't be happier and wish we had done this years ago. The Class C is really the best of each all in one comfortable easy to manage and maintain package.
We just travel with all the tanks empty (a little water in the fresh water tank for mama to flush the toilet while traveling) and pack what we need not stuff we never use. We put anything really heavy in the Jeep toad as it doesn't count against payload.
I would load every tool I owned but now learned to leave most of that stuff at home. I just pack a tool kit now of things I have actually needed in the past and go from there. You will find that the Class C's don't have an abundance of outside storage so that will limit you from overloading. I have found the storage to be quite adequate after getting rid of stuff I never or seldom used anyway.
Inside storage is very adequate but limited so again I doubt you will exceed your payload unless you have several passengers. If it's just the two of you I think you will be fine. We actually have a little more payload than you mentioned and we got every option available in 2018. Ours is a 29MVP Prestige with 2 air conditioners, big 4 door refrigerator, full body paint, alcoa aluminum wheels.
