Terminology

Please include the following terms in the terminology post(The topic is closed, so I can't edit it myself or I would)

NCC: Net Carrying Capacity. The maximum weight of all occupants, personal belongings, food, fresh water, LP gas, tools, dealer-installed accessories and, for motorhomes, the tongue weight of the towed vehicle that can be carried by this RV. (To calculate the weight of water, multiply number of gallons times 8.33 pounds per gallon.) NCC is equal to or less than GVWR minus UVW. Note that this term is not really used any more.

CCC: Cargo Carrying Capacity. Comparable to the previously used NCC, CCC is equal to the GVWR less UVW, the weight of fresh water in the tank and hot water heater, the weight of propane in the tank, and the SCWR.

SCWR: Sleeping Capacity Weight Rating. Calculated by multiplying the number of sleeping positions as defined by the RV manufacturer by 154 pounds per position.

Note that many newer RVs report several CCCs based on a different passenger (aka "sleeping positions") loads. Also not that the UVW used by CCCs is problematical and is rarely accurate because of the weight options or other reasons.
