Greyhawk CCC

Hey Gang,

Can you guys chime on on CCC for these rigs? The yellow sticker on the one I'm considering says I have 1619 pounds to play with.

Seems low to me; is it?

Seems like there isn't much left once you put a family of 4 in there and hit the road. ME:200, DW: 140: DD1: 50, DD2:50

Am I overthinking this? I just assumed these things would carry 2k+ pounds of cargo easy.

In comparison the Redhawk 26XS my dealer has on the lot has a whopping 3179 pounds. I don't think I'm considering the Greyhawk anymore.

The last thing I want to do w/ a Class 'C' is start obsessing about weight and playing that game all over again like w/ a Travel Trailer. W/ a family of 4, I'm not going to be anywhere near 3179 pounds.

We loaded the Greyhawk 31FS for a week in Disney, 2 adults and 3 kids, 5 bikes, spare tire, food, drinks and pretty much tons of stuff. We weighed at a cat scale along the way and was only 210 pounds over on the rear axle.

Absolutely sure it was pounds. The dealer also had the BigFoot levelers on it so that supposedly added another 500+ pounds easy according to him. W/o the levelers that would have put it at 2100 pounds; much more realistic.

I've since ordered a 2015 Redhawk 26XS w/ the Bigfoot Levelers. Should put me around 2500-2600 pounds of CCC - right where I wanted to be in the first place.

Eh .... looks like the Redhawk won't be in until July - so now I'm not so sure I'm ordering it. I have a day to figure it out.

A fully loaded Greyhawk has essentially no CCC left. Our 31FS had less than 500# on the rear axle from the dealer with full tanks and no clothes or food.

That's what I figured; by full tanks do you just mean gas or also water? I don't boondock much so water isn't a big deal to me.

The 29MV has very little cargo holds on the back end of it; most of the cargo holds and usable cabinet space is between the axles; a good thing given the CCC of the rig.

I wish more Greyhawk owners would chime in here. Seems to me that many makes of Class 'C' motorhomes have generally the same problems: CCC and rear axle weight. My dealer has sold hundreds of them and never has any come back w/ structural failure. I'm sure there are a boatload of buyers/owners that don't even consider the weights of these things.

That being said, my family checks in around 450 pounds total, so that still leaves me a decent amount of cargo before I get above the max.
