Don't forget the weight of the liquids in your RV when figuring out how much you're carrying...So, which is heaviest? (The answer is in the next post...DON'T CHEAT!!) Hint: one is twice as heavy as the other.

Sweet wine is the heaviest...The specific gravity of wine is very close to that of water. It can be a little more or a little less depending upon the type of wine. Sweet wines tend to have a higher SG, so they weigh a bit more per gallon than water, which weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon.rollinglol
