You're probably right. Our 29M is on the 18k chassis. Can't imagine even the 20.5k would have been so much more expensive as to price us out. All loaded up for a long trip, fresh water full, and tow dolly connected I am almost at maximum. But I still have a lot more I can tow. Maybe I'll load more into the toad for the big trip this summer. Lol
