I can't understand that either. It is a bit of a sticking point for me in my decision.

Dorm room on wheels, right?

Then WTF was Honda thinking with the Civic-like payload? Put 4 frat boys and a cooler full of beer in there and you're over the weight limit. :roll:

Even if you CAN go over that limit safely, there is a reason it exists, go over it and you're taxing the rear springs which may sag over time from it and you may be exceeding the recommended weight for the standard tires too.

I don't get it. Payload should be AT LEAST 800 lbs.

I wonder if you couldn't add some adjustable air shocks in the back to raise it and support more weight, that might be an OK solution....
