Thumbs up Actual weight

We had the oppertunity to have our rig weighed recently! Our first day out we came upon a small town with a truck weigh station! It was empty so I pulled in! To my surprise the guy showed me where to put the front axle and proceded to weigh each axle with My DW & Me in it! Here is the ticket I received!

I carry my 2 extra spares in the front of the bed and 1 propane tank (Full) & 1 tank in the rear for easy access! The trailer tongue has a trailer tool box mounted (approx. 50# full) and 2 group 27 batteries! What couldn't fit in the TrailManor was stowed in the back seat and truck bed!

Is axle #3 the TM axle? If so, when you add the tongue weight, you probably come close to 3800-4000 lbs gross curb weight for the TM, which is consistent with alot of other folks here, including myself.

Thumbs up Exactly!!!!!

I was glad to finally know the true #'s! We spent 20 days on the road and made nightly stops at campgrounds. The rest of the time we were visiting Family & Friends! We cut our trip short because of the weather in Cleveland & Pittsburgh! Fortunatly on our way home we were always a day or so ahead of all the storms!

I have pretty close to the same weights as you.

the significant difference, in my opinion, is that I am 40 pounds heavier than you on the TM axle. At 3500 pounds we hit the limit.

When I was towing with the Chevy 1500HD I was surprised to see how even the weight was spread across all three axles.

Now that I tow with the 2500HD and either a 700 pound ATV in the truck or two motorcycles (400 pounds) I am sure that the ruck axle weights are noticeably higher than they were previously.
