Mike, you might want to consider visiting a CAT scale. I went through all this yesterday and it was an eye opener and learning experience. In the towing section of this forum, there is a procedure on how to weigh your TV/TT. Trust me you'll be glad you did. I sure was.
I was weighing our 197 for a prospective buyer. He was thinking his TV would tow it with no problems, I could not make the sale. His max tow capacity was 4500 lbs. I don't even know what his payload capacity was on his TV. Our 197 weighs 3890 lbs empty and tongue is 480lbs. Good thing I weighed the trailer before the sale, he would have been very unhappy.
