The yellow sticker is supposed to show the weight of the RV as it goes out of the door at the assembly plant... now they know what a load of water, fuel, propane, battery weight so they can add that if they like.

Seann,

If by "they" you mean the manufacture, as mentioned the weight of LP gas is included in the ship weight represented on the yellow weight sticker.

Now fuel....., I thought that the weight of a full tank of fuel was included as well for Toy Haulers, don't recall where I heard that, so I could be mistaken. Maybe someone knows for sure.(?)

Bob

Crabman hit it. Go to a CAT scale for your real weight. I just think of published weight as a guide. We're only on our second RV trailer but with both I headed for the scale before loading it with out stuff and again afterwards. I also have a TW scale, although it slipped and broke, so I'm still really guessing at this point on our new TT.

The published weight is just a starting point anyway... then add in the weight of clothes food dishes toys etc etc etc... load the vehicle up for a trip and stop one should be the scales ... YOU WILL BE IN FOR A SHOCK...

Read what I wrote as to what my sticker says:

It states, "The weight of this recreational vehicle trailer as completed at the factory with full propane cylinder(s) and full generator fuel if applicable is 4888 lbs". It does mention propane and fuel (if applicable), but not water/waste tanks.

I have at least two stickers in two places that say how much more the camper weighs when the fresh water tank is full.
