Winnebago is building a 31' MH on a 16,000 pound chassis!

It looks like Winnebago is building their 31'6", 2017 Vista model 31KE on a 16,000 pound chassis instead of the 18,000 chassis. Link to the "sneak peak" brochure.

 

Way to go Winnebago! By the time you get your water tank full, partially full black & gray tanks, all your cargo on board for a multi week or multi month trip, I see no way that you won't be way, way over the GVWR.

 

It would be so simple to just build it on the 18,000 pound chassis, like the other two ~30 foot long rigs in the Vista line. Or at least offer the 18,000 pound chassis as an option.

I wondered if it was a misprint, but the individual axle weights match the GVWR. Of course that could be a misprint as well. I did send an email to Winnebago about the weights. If/when I get a reply I'll update the topic.

Makes me wonder if it might be a misprint since the two models just below it show an 18,000# GVWR?

I'm with Kirk - I'd guess a misprint, since Winnie is not known for overloading the chassis.

Even when proofreading we sometimes read what we thought we wrote not what we actually wrote. When proofreading really counts I prefer to read my document out loud--slows me down enough to catch the errors I previously missed.

I received this canned reply from Winnebago:

 

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in Winnebago Industries. We appreciate hearing comments and your e-mail has been passed along to our Product Development Team for review.

Hopefully I'll hear back from the Product Development Team in a few days.
