What is your Weight sheet CCC
« on: December 05, 2009, 01:12:33 PM »
I realize that options will very this but to have a general idea for folks that want to know what the Winnebago different models can carry, what does the weight sheet mounted in the bedroom closet list for your Winnebago CCC. This is a question a lot of buyers want to know. This thread may give them some idea where to start and about what weight different models can handle. Again this will very slightly with options. I have been reading where some other brands are almost overweight off the assembly line.
   My 2006 Voyage , Ford V-10 lists CCC at 939 pounds. It is listed with full fuel, full propane, full water 683 pounds.  I do not have to subtract the 683 pounds of water from the 939 as they already did.  We do not boondock so never carry over 1/3 full.   The Scwr (weight of people on board (X number of sleeping areas) is 770 pounds.
 To be realistic the Scwr is for 5 people. Some RVs may travel with 5 people but ours is 2 people saving some weight there. I removed 2 CRT tube type TVs & replaced with LCD & saved 79 pounds. I added a combo washer/dryer added 148 pounds. If I am ever at a place that can weigh each wheel, I will as that is the best way to really know.
 My listed CCC weight for my 2006 Voyage is 939.  This is the start figure. Thanks Art

Art - great idea for a thread.  I think our CCC is listed at about 3200 pounds - I'll give an exact figure later.  We've added a washer/dryer, so that drops it about 150 pounds.

The very next model year for the Vectra/Horizon, Winnie went to a 14,400 (or thereabouts) pound front axle from a 12,000 pound axle in the '04s and '05s, so I'll bet the 2006 Vectra/Horizon has a CCC of around 5,000.

My 06' 32' Meridian DP lists the CCC as #5442 pounds.  I've never worried about how many books the DW wants to bring along!

My GCWR is a shade under #38,000 pounds.  No problem there either........

Our '03 Winnebago Ultimate Advantage 40e with Spartan chassis stated CCC is 3,270lb. That includes 4 skinny people at 154lb each, 109 gallon of water (905 lb), 110 gallon of diesel fuel, 37 gallon of LP.  We normally travel with only two people and 50 gallon or less of water and waste tanks nearly empty. According to the sheet, we also have 582 lb of dealer installed options.

We have had a four wheel loaded weight done twice (about 2 years apart), and are due another. The first time was before we began fulltiming, and the rig was 1,000 lb heavier with fulltiming load compared to part-timing load. Our left front is always heavier than right front, and right rear heavier than left rear. I count that due to large slide toward left front, and bedroom slide, 5 batteries and basement ac at right rear. We attempt to load cargo accordingly, though there isn't much we can do on the rear to off-balance things. The last time we were weighed we had more fresh water than normal, apx 70 gal, and were 500 lb under the 32,000 GVWR, and a couple hundred lb over weight on the right rear (about the only adjustment we could figure out to affect the rear balance was to carry less fresh water ...not likely to affect balance, but would reduce overall weight). The left front was a couple hundred lbs heavier than the right front, but still under max weight. (put the driver on a diet???). Our load range H tires have more weight capacity than our axles do, so based on the last weigh-in I run them at the recommended pressure for max GVWR, which is still under their max pressures by 10(front) to 15(rear) psi. After the last weigh-in, we lightened the load a bit by removing items we were hauling around but had not used, but have not had a chance to get another four wheel weight.

We have a new 2010 Winnebago View 24A which has an OCCC (Occupant and cargo carrying capacity) of 949 lbs. The CCC definition changed in 2009. The new definition, OCCC, is GVWR minus vehicle as built with full fuel and propane. It no longer includes people or any other fluids.

Best regards,

Our 2008 Journey has GVWR of 29,410 & actual weight with full tanks & our normal load (less passengers), of 25,250 which leaves 4,160 for passengers & anything else we might want to add.

Jim gave an excellent summary of OCCC. For those who care, the new OCCC weight rating is described in more detail here:

http://www.rvforum.net/SMF_forum/index.php/topic,26115.0.html

It is also in the RV Forum Glossary under CCC

Great info RV Roamer

I know that my coach fully loaded ready to go still has an unused ccc of approx 3600#, however I havent a clue what the sticker says.  Interesting.  Next time I visit the storage facility I will make a point to read it again and write it down and compare with my loaded weight print out.
I do remember it is in the 5000# plus range though.

Our Sightseer 35N has a CCC of 2800 pounds.

 I would like to have 3500 pounds.

I knew about the OCCC rating but hadn't paid much attention to it until we were looking at new motor homes at the GNR in July. I thought some had great CCCs until I realized you had to subtract 156 pounds for all the people allowed to get the real number.

The new OCCC standard is interesting.  I crunched the numbers on my coach to see how the numbers compare.

- The stated CCC of our 2003 Winnebago Ultimate Advantage is 3,270 lb. Subtract 582 in dealer installed options to get the real CCC of 2,688.
- The OCCC of the SAME coach would be 4,794 (with the notice to reduce that number by the 582 lb dealer installed options) for "true" number 4,212.
- This coach has a fresh water capacity of 109 gallon (tank and water heater) for apx 905 lb. The black tank capacity is 50 gallon, and the gray tank capacity is 54 gallon for apx 938 lbs of waste water. If I were to travel with full fresh and waste water tanks, that is nearly 1 ton of extra cargo!!!  (I don't normally travel with full waste tanks, but I did hear a seminar leader recommend at an Escapade that you should always travel with waste tanks nearly full so the sloshing around would help clean the tank sensors, and so that "air circulating in the tanks" would not dry out tank crud on the sensors and cause them to mis-read.)

The CCC standard allows owners to "forget" the weight of both the passengers AND the fresh water they are carrying. The OCCC standard brings both into consideration, AND allows consideration of the fact that most of us weigh a few pounds over the magic 154 lbs!  NEITHER causes you to think much about the weight of the waste tanks.

Good analysis, Paul!  So, what it the real motivation behind the change from CCC to OCCC?  Hmmm...? 

This might be a good topic to split off to make a new thread - let's see how this progresses.

After being loaded "close to the edge" in my last 5ver and pervious TT, I was determined not to have that problem again.  It used to drive me nuts listening to guys bragging about how their truck could "pull anything".  Funny, nobody ever bragged about how much their truck could stop.  Now I don't worry much about weight, full tanks, or full fuel.  It's a good feeling but I do keep mindful about unnecessary weight as weight translates into fuel savings.  Not that does get my attention..........

I looked in the closet of our 2004 Journey 39W today and the CCC is stated at 4107 pounds.  I don't think there is enough storage space available for stuff to get close to that number but haven't weighed our coach lately.

You might be amazed. Our CCC is almost 6000 lbs and we are right up there. But then, we normally spend several months a year (continuous) on the road and carry a lot of gear to be prepared for any social occasion or weather.  Those who make shorter duration trips tend to carry less.

CCC in our 36', 3 slide Winnebago is 1,560 lbs. 

That is plenty for us, as we both work full time, and we only take a couple of weeks off here and there for vacations.  We were a bit worried when we bought our unit, as some told us we just "HAVE to have a unitwith at least 3K CCC", but even with the basement storage areas, we would be hard pressed to find any more ROOM to store stuff, and have never reached our GVWR.

And that is exactly what I would expect for the weekenders and the vacationeers - plenty of volume and available weight capacity.  When we fulltimed, we needed all 3200 pounds of CCC and could have used much more.

Fulltiming really makes you "efficient" in your packing and loading.  I learned to maximize all my available space, and only to take what I really thought I would need.  I still took some stuff I never used.  When we struck out this time in November for about the next 15 months, I actually have less, but still everything I need to fulltime.  And I'm still about 3K under my max.

Sorry to inject a dumb question but since we bought this coach "used"... I don't have the magic sheet with this info.  How would I go about getting a new sheet?  All I have is the GVWR and a weight measurement.

Amazing, there it is, stapled to the closet door!  We have 5700lb to load...  can not even imagine carrying that much weight out to the MH... or once there, storing it somewhere.  I think we have plenty of margin.  thanks for the tip.

This thread prompted me to check the closet of my recently purchased Luxor on an Oshkosh AllSteer chassis. I was pleased with a CCC of 4,265lbs which should be plenty for
me and my Yorky even though I vastly exceed 154lbs. I had the motorhome in storage for several months as I finished a previously planned trip in my Airstream trailer. For six weeks I have been fixing and servicing everything on the Winnebago getting ready for the big change from trailer to Class A diesel pusher. I had rear end alignment problems and feared I might have to go to Oshkosh after trying Freightliner (recommended by Winnebago) but I called Oshkosh and they said to take it to my nearby Pierce Fire Equipment dealer. What a resource! Great guys! Great service! Fixed me right up, they got a real kick out of working on a motor home. I mentioned the tires were six years old
and that only Michelin had a highway tread steer tire for the rear in 425/65-22.5 (yes that is really the rear size, only one on each side) and they got a set of tires $500 cheaper than any quote I could get. Anyway I am very close to ready to put this classic Winnebago back on the road (one of only 14 built in 1995).

Steve, keep in mind that the 1995 Luxor was a year vintage that listed NCC and not CCC.  NCC will not include fluids and passengers, while CCC will.   :)  

What's even more confusing, is now they have changed the capacity lingo to OCC, which doesn't include passengers anymore.

Sheet indicates that it includes fuel but not water or waste tanks, still seems plenty for me and a 9lb dog and all the water we need, I have been used to a lot less capacity in the Airstream.

It's not a problem - no worries!  This topic is in the Winnebago Specific board so you must have picked it up from a new post notification or something like that.

At any rate, we always welcome participation from anybody, Winnie owner or not.  This particular topic sort of precludes non-Winnie owners, but that is a little unusual for most of our topics.

Our 2007 Sightseer 29R has a CCC of 1776 pounds. There are only two of us and I only fill the water tank when I get close to our destination when we dry camp.

I am waiting for the snow to melt so I can get wheel weights to figure how much and where we can add weight for the goodies we want to carry.

John, correct - I generally read new post via the "Show unread posts since last visit."  option and read the posts of subjects that grab my attention.  The Category post in generally is not even noted and it is subdued or understated as listed on website.   Thus my wishing that the "Winnebago Specific Board" was somehow different (i.e.  color, font, etc.) 

I reread the starting post and it does state Winnebago only but I missed or ignored for a couple of reasons, all my fault but still interesting question for all of us.  I know you state non Winnie owners generally OK to participate on your board but I have seen other post/topics where you wanted specific Winnie input only and we non winniedudes input was not welcome. 

I know it is a small thing if non Winnie owners respond to Winnie specific issues (and you could just delete them if it is) but we would just as soon not step on your toes so could you help us out some by being more visible?

No staff will ever delete a relevant reply regardless of which section it's posted or who posted it.  Many questions asked here and in other sections are not specific to manufacturer, even if the asking member has a Winnebago (or Monaco, Tiffin, etc.).  This is the RV Forum.

Jennifer - actually you happened to respond to one of the very few posts in the Winnie board that was on the exclusive side.  Generally, 99% of the posts are great candidates for input from the forum at-large.

As far as I'm concerned, this hasn't been a problem in the past and I still don't consider it a problem.  It would be pretty clunky if we asked every Winnie poster to preface their post subject with "Winnebago."

No harm, no foul, no problem...

Finally got a look at my weight sheet.  2002 Journey DL
GVW 26,850---------UVW 21,180 with full fuel, oil and coolants for a 5670# capacity
Sleep capacity 770 #-CCC 3924#

My 4 corner weight sheet loaded ready to roll is.
Front 7500#  Rear 15,500#   total is 23,000#   --  3850# under my GVW.

So if I deduct  my sleep capacity of 770# and add the difference of my weight sheet from my CCC I get roughgly 845# of stuff I have crammed into my compartments, drawers, refridgerator, etc.

When my wife,I and our dog Charlie get in the rig for travel it will add more (I will not say) It might hurt Charlies feelings.

i know my calculations can't be spot on but close enough

RCTime really has "hit the nail on the head" and it is an important point for everyone.  You really need to weigh all four corners to determine your CCCC.  I have 3,300 lbs of CCC but I'll never get there because I cannot add ANY to the rear axle.  Delivered with tanks full my rear axle is almost maxed out because of the slides and floor plan.  So, I can add all I want but it must go on the front end which is almost impossible to do.  So, the only way I can really add weight to the front end is to put my Silver Wing on a lift in the front of the motor home.  I think it would look dorky but I have lots of "free ccc" capacity in the front.  What I am trying to say is that you may have lot's of CCC in theory but you still cannot exceed the maximum on each axle, i.e., in my case 20,000 lbs in the rear and 14,500 in the front.  I'm at 19,600 in the rear but only 12,500 in the front.  I cannot hang my scooter on the rear but have lots of capacity in the front.  I hope this helps.

In an ideal world, if you load the front axle to 90% of its rated load, the rear axle should be loaded to 90% of its rated load.
