377RLBH weights

Wife is wanting me to upgrade to this model, does anyone have real world weights for tongue and fifth wheel after they have all their “stuff “ in it that they would mind sharing ?

Personally I would plan on the gross weight rating and use 20% of that for a pin weight, that way you will be prepared for the maximum allowable weight. If you size a tow vehicle for less than the gross weight rating you will never be able to use the full capacity of the trailer.

My pin weight is 22% and could easily go higher if I added, say a generator up front.
