Somethings not right.

The Aktiv 1.0 is on a Ram 2500 and the specs:
Maximum GVWR 9350 lbs. / 4241 kg
Loaded vehicle weight 8050 lbs. / 3651 kg
Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity 1300 lbs. / 590 kg

Aktiv 2.0 is in Ram 3500 and the specs:
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating – 9350 lbs./4241 kg
Loaded Vehicle Weight – 8600 lbs./3900 kg
Occupant & Cargo Carrying Capacity –750 lbs./340 kg

Seems like they listed the 2500s GVWR 9350 lbs but the 2.0 is on a 3500 chassis so it should be way more.

I would assume that it is the same website people for Hymer and Roadtrek. And the RT web people have always missed quite a few mistakes on Specs... what appears to be poor proofreading.

I should apply there because I would fit right in.....I too am good at typos, mistakes, and fake info.

Seems plausible though that the weight rating is correct though, right? I like that they're honest about it, but seems way too easy to go over 750lbs especially if any additional equipment is added.

So this would put the max occupant and cargo capacity is 750 lbs for the 2.0
and the max occupant and cargo capacity is 850 lbs for the shorter 1.0.

Does the 3500 chassis and 14 inches equal an extra 550 lbs?

GVWR figures I quoted (8900 lbs for Promaster 2500 and 9350 lbs for Promaster 3500) are from specs listed on manufacturer's website at fcausfleet.com. I have a Sportsmobile custom Class B motorhome on a gas 2016 Promaster 2500 High Roof 136WB. Curb weight of the empty van was 4809 lbs before Sportsmobile conversion. As delivered from Sportsmobile I weighed it at 6900 lbs. Fully loaded for a long trip, all tanks full and 2 occupants (250 lbs total) adds 1000 lbs, so it weighs 7900 lbs and has equal weight on all 4 wheels. GVWR IS 8900 lbs, so we have an extra 1000 lbs capacity when traveling. Per tire manufacturer load tables, I run 62 psi in all tires. Calculated mpg for total of 20,000 miles is 18.9 mpg.
