Don’t look now but your number is off again. [emoticon]. Well, I guess you could say you were talking about a extended length chassis bed.

Well I'm just happy my gray tank isn't sitting 7 ft behind my rear axle.

For me, a couple hundred pounds is no big deal. Even sitting 3-4 ft behind my rear axle.

You just love to talk about things you have no idea about, don't you?

Hard to estimate if it was 100 or maybe 200 lb of waste water, but it did make drastic change.
Bear in mind that 200 lb in rear tank adds like 300+ on rear axle and takes over 100lb from front.
When your front is already light due to TC COG being behind the axle, it doesn't take much and the incident happen when I was moving interstate, so my camper had lot of house belongings in it -meaning HEAVY.
So now my first thing after taking shower inside is how to dump the water.

Just seems odd to me. I have a LARGE camper and just don't experience that at all.

I put a 4000 lb camper in the back of my pickup and it only took 100 pounds off the front axle.

Maybe you're just over sensitive.
