Most of my extra essential stuff was for just in case... Just in case I get company for dinner, I need to have the entire Iron Chef Kitchen available. Just in case I get board I need to have the Rolling Blockbuster Video DVD selection available. Just in case, well you get the idea. Sad part is, 95% of the time it's just Kyra (for picture, scan left) and me. The other 5% I have a friend who tags along. I have found that doing without (which sounds extreme, but it's not) forces me to actually get out and do/see more of where I am, instead of just sticking to my pre-arrival to do/see list. In other words, if it's raining out and I really don't feel like watching Titanic for the 167th time, I get wet, and go to some nearby attraction or museum that I didn't even consider going to before I left. UNLESS it's thundering out, then I need to stay home and protectKyra from the boom booms :r (Pits are vicious... yeah right)

I always remind myself that no matter where I go if I absolutley need something, I can always buy it on the road. Granted it might be a bit more expensive, but that might help you realize that you don't really need it either... like the time I paid $4.99 for a pound of butter.. :censor

Hi Benny
I think your Bolers weight of 1464 loaded is just about right. We carry 300-400 lbs of stuff in ours, depending on the trip. It's amazing how much things add up. We have the weights for everything we take. No we're not paranoid but years ago after a disasterous drive home at a maximum speed of 30 mph with the old tent trailer, we came home a weighed everything. All the storage in that thing was on one side so it was very easy to get it loaded wrong and then have it fish-tail. We've never had that problem since.

I'm betting our Trillium loaded would end up weighing about the same as your Boler. Hmmmm maybe we'ell just weigh it loaded and save some work!
