That was a smart move. I did the same thing when I got my Jayco Designer. I first weighed the truck without the fiver fully loaded with what I normally carry, tool box and full fuel 2 people. Then I weighed the fiver as I was pulling it home from the dealer. Then weighed it again fully loaded with water, pots, pans, and what I normally carry. Every one should weigh their rig on a cat scale. They would be surprised at how many are over loaded Tires and axles. I would like to weigh each wheel on my 5th wheel because you can overload a wheel or wheels on one side and still be within the GCVWR Thereby having a overloaded Tire or tires on one side.

We had each wheel on our Truck and 5th Wheel weighted so we know how much weight is on each wheel.
It was interesting how much more the left side of the 5er weighed than the right side.
We were pretty close front to rear wheel on the 5er

We are still well within the Axle and Tire ratings of our Pinnacle.

Weight:

I also wanted to add that I have ST235-80R16E rated G/Y Marathones that have been good up to this point after 15,000 miles. The weight's seem to be in line
buy close.

An excellent thread! Guess who's picking up his new 5th on the 25th. Timing is everything. Thanks for the posts!
