Interesting.. that seems a bit heavy? My 78FC35 weighs;

FR = 11080
RR = 16220
Total 27300

and it is a 3' longer bus? I did weigh mine with empty holding tanks, full water and fuel.

How does it compare to the rated specs? That's what ultimately matters....

Mike,
Just a WAG here but could a large part of that weight difference be from the fact that you don't have the extra hardware associated with the Air suspension?
