There don't seem to be ANY dumb questions asked on this forum (I've tried).
The pin weight will vary based on how much "stuff" you load into the 5th. As the 5th is shipped from the factory the pin weight would be equal to the dry hitch weight (or nearly so). I think the weights listed on the Jayco web site will be estimates based on a pre-production model or the first of the production runs (or maybe just a guess). The 5th will come with its "yellow sticker" which has the VIN and supposedly the actual weight of the trailer as shipped. Options included, manufacturing changes/variables and construction debris make the actual weight go up.
Our Dry Hitch and Weight were 2,305# and 10,685#.
Loaded for travel the pin is 3,020# and the 5th is 12,700#
