Well after 2 years of, "I'm gonna do it next trip", I finally put the rig on the CAT Scale at the Pilot. Here goes.
Steer axle- 4,880 lbs
Drive axle- 6,040 lbs
Trailer axles- 8,920
Gross weight- 19,840 lbs
That is the truck with a freshly topped off tank of fuel, including me, DW, the girls, and some odds and ends in the bed of the truck. The trailer with close to full propane, half full black tank, no gray or fresh water, and the rest of the usual "stuff" in the coach.
I know that the truck weighs between 7,700 and 7,800 lbs with me and a full tank of fuel on the scales at the feed mill. Minus the DW, dogs, and the fifth wheel hitch. Soooo without revealing the DWs weight and paying the severe consequences that would occour
I figure the truck weighs in at approx. 8,000 lbs in towing travel mode.
19,840 lbs gross combined weight
- 8,000 lbs
11,840 lbs coach weight
Since the trailer has a gross weight rating of 12,500 lbs, this means I have approx. another 660 lbs free to fill with more stuff.
Just kidding. We already travel with way too much stuff.
I just thought that JohnB and some of you other folks might like to see the numbers. Oh, and also thanks to John for weighing the pin weight at the 2008 M&G I know the pin weight to be 2,700 lbs.
