Thought I added my 2 cents (2 lbs?) to this thread but I guess not. Must say it's a bunch of light weights on here.

We're 3300# on the pin and 23700# going down the road with empty trailer tanks.

What's Your "Scaled" Tongue/Pin Weight?

Can you folks go back and moving forward list your tow vehicle?

Referencing thread subject matter and for simplicity listing TV model didn't influence scaled tongue/pin weights..., but for reference many responses note TV model in member's signature.

1440lbs tw. I don’t recall the total rig weight, but it was close to the gvwr.

CAT Scale.

Reese Dual Cam w/ 1500lb bars.

Heavy. In the front pass through: Weber Q220, Camp Chef Explorer 2 burner stove, 10x10 Ez Up hd model, 2-5lb propane tanks. 2 Al roll top tables, tub with water hoses & extension cords (10g, 12g), x chocks, 2-9x12 awning mate, and under the bed: 4 bag chairs, ice maker, 5g water jug, and a fold up wagon.

When I weighed the last time, I had ~20g of fresh water in the tank, empty gray & black tanks (~4g in Black, ~3g in gray). Also had 3-26” mountain bikes (1 Specialized, 2 Treks) on the bike rack in the rear cargo hitch.

* Jayco Model & Year: 2016 287 BHSW

* Scaled Tongue Weight: 880 / Gross trailer weight was 7740

* Scale Method: CAT scale

* Brand/Model Hitch: Blue Ox SwayPro 1000 Underslung

* Personal Loading Habits: Heavy, we were 240 over on the trailer

* Added Loading conditions: Had full propane, about 1/3 on the fresh water tank and frankly, we loaded for bear because it was a week long trip with a new 2500. I wanted to see what it could do. We brought cast iron pans and more than usual. We have a heavy mattress topper in the front room. The roof was repaired by the dealer with an additional layer of plywood and rubber. Had a heavy cooler full of drinks and ice in the bathroom.

Awesome! My exact combination that I may be winding up with, HDPP and the same trailer. (options are frameless glass, corian prolly same batteries, and hopefully solar in the future with lithium) By any chance do you have a thread about the solar install?
