I've tried to use these calculators but I just don't know actual weights right now so I'm not sure how much of a help they will be. I've been doing some math (guesstimates at best) and here's what I'm coming up with:
Curb weight of TV - 4557lbs (including 150lbs for driver)
Passengers (3 - not including driver) - ~450lbs
No cargo (wife said we will put all our gear in the trailer when towing which I'm totally skeptical about)
tongue (dry hitch?) - 315 lbs (most likely higher from what I've read)
Weight of vehicle + passengers + 0 cargo + tongue = 5322 lbs
So dry weight - 2832 lbs (I'm using MsPooley's yellow sticker as a baseline - I know the number will vary greatly)
Trailer has 26gal fresh water capacity, but we don't use a whole lot of water and to keep things light, I fig. we would use about 10 gals over the course of a weekend. I'll go with 15lbs just to be safe.
Water @ 15 gals. = 8.33lbs/gal = 124.95 gals.
Propane & battery = 125 lbs(?)
Cargo (I have no idea what food/clothes will weigh and we generally use paper /plastic products) so I'd guess about 200-300 lbs
Weighted vehicle (dry weight + water +cargo (300lbs to be safe) = 3381 lbs
TV + Weighter Trailer = 8703 lbs.
My TV GCVWR is 9980 so 9980 - 8703 = 1277 or 87% of Max
Does my math look correct? How comfortable would you guys feel about this #?
