Load 6 grown men, 6 kayaks, & a ton of gear into a 19 ft. motor home, then make a 500 mile drive to a whitewater kayaking festival in Denali National Park.
I would estimate that we had about 1,500 lbs of gear, boats, and people added, with about 500 lbs of that on the roof made of 1 inch stick framing. Yipes... BUT, the Toyota motor home proved to be a champ and carry the weight just fine. We stopped often & used our hands to feel the tires for excessive heat, as well as the axle bearings.
The kayak race on the Nenana River (the 37th annual Nenana River Race) was a great time! I still have sore muscles where I did not know muscles existed.
Until the next adventure...
