Winnebago Era Weight Ratings

Once you have your Winnebago Era, it’s time to get ready to pack for your first trip. Before you do so, it is important to know the following weight ratings to ensure you do not “overfill” your new RV.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight Rating – This the weight of the Winnebago Era with only a full tank of fuel. This rating may vary based on optional content. It will be approximately 9,146 – 9,453 lbs.

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) -This is the total weight of all cargo which includes all of your gear, you, and the freshwater tanks full. This is approximately *1,577-1,884 lbs. on the Winnebago Era and will vary by optional content. *To find the exact OCCC of your Era, see the orange sticker inside the passenger side door.

The unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity = the Era’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). 11,030 lbs. 

Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) – This is the absolute maximum weight of the  Winnebago Era + any trailer or vehicle towed behind it. GCWR is the unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity+ any towed vehicles (GVWR + any towed vehicles. )15,250 lbs.

Towing Capabilities – The Era has a factory installed 5,000 lb. tow package. However, keep in mind if your RV is fully loaded, using all of your OCCC, up to a full GVWR of 11,000 lbs. that you are still limited to the GCWR of 15,250 lbs. So, your trailer or towed vehicle should not exceed 4,220 lbs. (GCWR 15,250 – GVWR 11,030.)  

Some additional weights you may see if you were to weigh your Era are the gross axle weight rating for the front axle and the rear axle which are 4,410 lbs. and 7,720 lbs. respectively.

With the efficiency of a camper van coupled with the efficiencies of a diesel RV and the optional enhanced capability of 4WD, the Era Class B Diesel motorhome from Winnebago will allow you to tour in style and camp in comfort.
