I want to sell my TT and go back to a TC. Among others, I am looking at the Lance 1030 and 1130 models. I would like input on what might be encountered weight-wise fully loaded ... water, propane, personal possessions, etc. I believe you can easily get 1000# or more added to the dry weight. Dry weights appear to be in the upper 2900/low 3000's.
My 01 ext cab DRW grosses at 11400. Empty but with two adults, fuel and misc in the cab, I am almost at 7400. I am 5460 below my RAWR, and have E-rated tires. The cargo capacity according to the sticker in the glove box says 3718, which I am not clear if this is a structural limitation of the bed. In any event, I would rather not exceed my 11400 GWR. Thanks.

As per the 'Lance get a quote' link on their website , the options weigh about 550 . That gets added to the dry wt. then add all your personal stuff .
The Lance 1050 non slide floorplan is close to the 1030/1130 .

Those units should be around 3800-4100k all ready to roll .

A dually will handle it fine .

The cargo capacity is not a limitation of the bed. It is your GVWR minus curb weight minus 150lbs for each possible seating position. Your actual cargo capacity is simply your GVWR minus your measured curb weight with people included. Since you measured that at 7400lbs, that leaves 4000lbs.

This is a info sheet from a Lance 900 which is approximately the same as the 990. The 990 was re-badged the 1130 in 1999 with a few minor cabinet and bath changes. Any 1130 you find should be within a couple of hundred pounds of what you see on the sheet.

Your dually will handle it fine. Suggestions would be some Rancho 9000's, and maybe some overload spring extenders to engage the overloads a bit sooner than stock in case you experience too much sag when loaded.

I think it will too. I am just bothered by the numbers. The F450 is probably the real answer for larger campers, but mine is paid for! Thanks again. ae

You won't have a problem with an 1130 weight with your dually. I had an 1110 which had a heavier base weight. My 1110 was 3200 lbs empty. With all the benefits I had with this camper, my newer heavier AF rides much better on my dually, I believe it's because the Lance 11xx models had the COG behind the rear axle.

Don't the AF models have less incline on the cabover sections? Did you notice more wind resistance? They seem to be much taller over the cab. With the 8.1, I pray for tailwinds! ae

This is nice. I thought batteries would be listed because all of teh Lance brochures I have (been collecting them) show the batteries as dealer installed items. There is another 100#. Did you ever consider adding an anti-sway bar? I put one on both the front and rear of my 72 K20 and it made quite a difference. It was like driving a manhole cover without the camper on! ae
