MC5 weight
« on: May 27, 2012, 10:15:08 AM »
Just had my 5C on the scales again: 28000 lbs, with almost full fuel and water.

How much does your 5 weigh?

We weighed it on our first trip about 4 years ago.  It was about 27,000#.  Since then, I think I have probably carried more things in than out though.  Oh yeah, I bet changing the Spicer for the Allison changed something too.

Over the 9 years we have been fulltiming we have gained about 2000 lbs.  We are just under 30,000....time to go on a diet. :)
