Has anyone read the latest edition of Trailer Life? I was reading the cover story dealing with the 2017 Lance 2375 and was astonished at reading that it's cargo carrying capacity is only 310 lbs!

Anyone here able to go camping with that kind of capacity limitation?

You have to read the spec sheets carefully. There are quite a few that after filling the water tank, or with FW empty but grey and black full, have only a couple hundred pounds left, in particular in the lightweight catagories.

Yes - it lists the weight at 6190 which includes fresh water, water heater, and full LP tanks.Fresh water capacity is 45 gallons, so without that, you gain 375 lbs or 685 lbc CCC total.

So ninety-nine percent of those buying and using that Lance model will be way overloaded and Lance can say...."not our fault" and "we told you only 310 pounds after water." That is not right.

Those look like a nice camper, but I have owned a lance and frankly I didn't see double the cost of the regular run of the mill TT in quality, and no way can I make it with a shower curtin, mine was stored inside and it was like the other 4 brands of TT I have owned when I sold it, a used camper.


PS My run of the mill TT has 1,400 lb of gear storage over "wet" weight.
