Hmm... alcohol is less dense than water, so to reduce weight I think you should go stronger, not "lite"

From a logistics POV, it'd make sense to just buy as we go, this also reduces the accumulation of obvious empties (returning them as the daily stock is replenished)

BUT, we camp off grid, and we need to take in our supplies. So we'll have to jettison something else.

And lite wine? does that even exist?

I'm not concerned with my load but found the scaling, to be helpful.

Afterthought

The rails that are permanently mounted in my box floor, look to weigh about 20+ pounds apiece.

It all adds up.

An Afterthought

I've been reviewing the load in the trailer, and I think there was about 200 pounds of stuff, that was unusual. Things that wouldn't normally be in the trailer.

We have adult children on the way to our camping place- and we had some of their things in the trailer.

Cause I'm a delivery service, don't ya know...
