« One Of Those Days When Weighing RVs Isn't All That Fun - (Goshen, IN) | Main | Friends Gathering In Goshen - (Goshen, IN) »

Any insights into the motorhome weight situation? Are they basically within specs or are you finding them overweight or unbalanced? You've sighted examples of 5th wheelers with issues, but I've not noticed any comments about motorhomes. As a percentage, are you weighing as many motorhomes as 5ers?


Among all RV types, 58% of the RVs weighed have at least one overweight issue. It's pretty much across the board with motorhomes being only a couple percentage points below trucks and fifth wheels.

Most of the over 35,000 RVs in the RVSEF database are motorhomes. Most of the teams in the past weighed motorhomes for a variety of reasons including they are easier. :)

I am going to the RV show in our city next week and hope that the newer RV's are better with the overweight issues.
Thanks for sharing
