One interesting new standard feature for 2021 is an electronic parking brake. This changes back to the old manual brake at GVWR of #9500 or so. Makes a better path to the rear between the seats.
You also lose certain features as you meet or exceed #10,000 GVWR. Things like side curtain air bags, CHMSL, I think rear view camera. Certain things that are not mandated over that weight. You may also run into driving license or endorsement problems in certain states.

Wow - I'm actually surprised it's that light :-) Are there pics somewhere? I'm curious about what is and isn't part of your config . . . .


Thanks!!!

This was a pretty standard SMB Fresno (when it was still SMB) build. It's quite comfortable for two people and we routinely boon-dock for two or three days before we have to source water. We could do four or five days but we both take a hot shower daily. Yup, I know, we are not really camping.
-Front facing couch across the back that folds down for a bed with a 23 G H2O tank, 2800 watt Magnum inverter and a sub-woofer mounted underneath the couch
-Two ottomans for storing crap and completing the bed
-Stowable table
-AGM 4D battery in the spare tire well
-Two overhead cabinets on each side in the rear, mounted high
-The SMB Extreme Weather Insulation package (I added more myself)
-Espar/Rixen Hydronic D5 gas heater with flat plate
-Shower/toilet room
-Kitchen area with sink, two drawers, two cabinets, granite counters
-Isotherm Cruise 100 liter/3.5 cf refrigerator/freezer
-Another granite counter-top above fridge
-Microwave oven
-Two 115 watt Zamp solar panels
-Maxxair Maxxfan Plus
-Roof mounted Dometic AC unit
-Fiamma 10' side mounted awning
-Aluminess front bumper (no winch, gotta wait until the wife ain't lookin)
-Aluminess rear bumper with spare tire and the small box
-And it's got the Quigley 4x4 conversion
See pics...

Thanks to all who replied on this!! After much discussion, we changed our order to the 10,360 GVWR version . . . and the order has been placed, so it's probably a bit late to change our minds now! :-))
