UVW (Unloaded Vehicle Weight)*:  The typical weight of the unit as manufactured at the factory. It includes all weight at the unitu2019s axle(s), including full fuel, all fluids and LP Gas. The UVW does not include cargo, fresh potable water, additional optional equipment or dealer installed accessories. 

*Estimated Average based on standard build optional equipment.

CCC (Cargo Carrying Capacity)**:  The amount of weight available for fresh potable water, cargo, passengers, additional optional equipment and accessories. CCC is equal to GVWR minus UVW. Available CCC should accommodate fresh potable water (8.3 lbs per gallon). Before filling the fresh water tank, empty the black and gray tanks to provide for more cargo capacity.
