A new way to travel

Traveling in the RV was a totally new experience for both of us as we could really just stop when and wherever we really wanted to and not have to worry about anything.  We did just that and it made for a very leisurely drive.  Its was the most stress free road trip I’ve ever been on.

We decided to put the RV on the weight scale at the gas station and see where we weighed in.  The final numbers were as follows: Front steer axle – 3160 lbs  Rear drive axle – 7630 lbs    For a  Total weight of: 10,790 lbs.

We were only overweight by 290 lbs which is pretty good, all things considered.  We did finally dump our full gray water holding tank at a rest stop about half way through our trip.  I really noticed the difference in the way the RV drove and estimated that the full tank added about 750 more lbs to the over all weight, all of which was focused over the rear axle.  Not good!  But good to have it gone.
