Yes before my first trip. Dealer installed the hitch and i just wanted to know that i was at least within my maximun weight limits with a loaded setup. Plan on doing some fine adjustments this spring.

I've actually been to the CAT scales twice so far, soon to be there for the third time, hopefully with everything adjusted correctly. By the time we actually go somewhere, should be good to go.
Luckily we have one within 15mi of where we live.

Not yet. ... in the process of eliminating excess "things". After that, will try a different loading arrangement. Then, it's off to the scales.

Yes, the day after getting the trailer. It was mostly empty at the time though, so have to receive when loaded.

I'm taking mine to the DOG scale, they're bigger. Seriously though, since my TV is a 2012 F-250, I can't wait to test Fords 50% nomenclature on WDH to compare front GAWR. If I must, I guess I'll have to go to the lowly CAT scale instead. LOL

I'm curious what you find out as well.

Modification to my vote. No, not yet.

No problems but I will get a weight before we go too far. Only 60 miles pulling this thing so far. Had to go to the DMV for a VIN inspection.

Weighted mine after about 6 months. No problems, just wanted to know - and I feel better about knowing.
