Red face tongue weight

I'm looking at weight distribution hitches and see they are weight specific. My 2003 T-2653 data sticker is faded & unreadable. Can anyone tell me the tongue weight of my rig?

Hi,

Like Chuck said about 740 lbs. I haven't officially weighed our 2000 T2653, but would guess right about 1,000 lbs loaded. It is easy to add weight to the tongue on this model as the kitchen is up front. Add your food, drinks, pots and pans, you will add 200 lbs in a hurry. At the very minimum get the 1,000 lb rated hitch and weight distribution bars. Happy camping!!

Thanks guys, I thought the 1k was probably the best option.

FYI, just for reference, for my T2670 with a 7k GVWR, I use 800 lb bars. I don't remember the tongue wt, but I believe a year or two newer models they changed the axle location and added a higher tongue rating. I originally had 500 or 600 lb bars, I haven't had issues with the 800 lb bars.
