Two options that might work on a practical basis:

1) Go through everything you haul regularly and leave much of it at home on a future trip. You'll find most of us carry more than we need. Getting rid of stuff we don't use often is easier than upgrading to a larger RV.

2) To carry a lot more stuff, consider towing an enclosed cargo trailer.

By the way, I'm curious what your actual axle weights are, and also how much extra CCC you are looking to carry.
