2021 Jayco 330rsts cargo weight

Me and my wife are about to take our trailer from Kentucky to North Carolina for 3 months. The cargo weight is 1380 lbs I think. Iím having a hard time visualizing that. With the tanks empty, are clothes and dishes going to put me near the limit. Iíve just seen a lot of people on here complain about the cargo weight for my trailer, but Iím assuming itís because they want to tow it with water?

We travel heavy - There are my DW and I along with 2 adult children. A third adult child travels separately with his wife and our grandson but stows his stuff in the camper as well.

They each bring enough clothes on a simple weekend trip to last 2 weeks. I carry a lot of tools, pop up tent, grill, Blackstone, spare parts and wooden cribbing etc.

My DW packs enough food and drink to feed us for 2 weeks. She is is Italian and claims it is a sin to not be able to feed everyone including uninvited neighbors and guests.

All our cargo adds just under 1600 pounds to our loaded weight.

A 3-month trip in a 40' trailer- 1,300 pounds is very likely going to be limiting, yes. Do yourself a favor and take the trailer to a local truck stop and weigh it. Take the actual weight and subtract that from the trailer's maximum weight (GVWR/gross vehicle weight rating) to find out your actual payload.

Welcome to the forum!

I understand your concern with the cargo weight and it's definitely part of the equation but keep in mind the GVWR is the primary number to stay under. I think as long as you stay around or under 12k lbs. total you'll probably be fine. Loading the trailer then taking it to a weigh station is good piece of mind.
