I think "nort" and "go" have nailed it. Get a weight that is good and as long as you don't start carrying another elephant in the front compartment any changes from trip to trip will be negligible. Adding 200# to your TT should affect your tongue by ~26#. If that's going to put you over weight on the tongue you should be shopping for a bigger truck, smaller TT or leave the elephant at home.
"Night" has a good suggestion as well, maybe hitting the scale every spring (or so) is just good mojo.
I also think the CAT Scale accuracy is about +-10# anyway.
All this said, guess what?
The CAT Scale is your friend.

Thanks GoDucks and Rustic Eagle for those links.
I've got them marked as favorites, so when I get my TT out of storage this spring, I'll be hitting the scales. Thanks again.

Thanks for this good info. I'm going to get my TV weighed this weekend just to see what it is. My camper is new, and not loaded yet, so I don't know how much I'll get out of it. I'll weigh it once I have it loaded The link for the cat scales is exactly what I thought I needed to do.
