I should be ok on rear axle GVW (I assume I measure that against rear GAWR, correct?). If so, it is rated at 3110 and in this scenario, I'm only loading it to 2871. I was actually surprised that I didn't end up closer to the threshold.

if your under your GVWR you should be good. Just make sure that your rear axle GVW is within limits.

Dan,

Just want to make sure I didn't mis-interpret your earlier post where you presented a graph inclusive of your CAT scale data.

My post #27 response is based on the fact that the Tacoma axle weights reflected under "actual" came from your CAT scale certificate as implied by your statement "my CAT print out (which has the front and rear axle weights of the Tacoma)".

Pleae advise.

Bob

The "actual" columns are the CAT scale results plus the additional hitch weight of the trailer.

Sorry, I should clarify. The actual GVW on the spreadsheet is assuming the TT is connected (includes the hitch weight). When I say 30lbs is remaining, that is after everything is hooked up. Same for the actual payload (145lbs is what should be remaining after the TT is hooked up). Sorry for the confusion. I should have named that column "Anticipated" instead of "Actual".

Oh, so you are saying that the Tacoma axle weights under "actual" shown on your graph are not representative of what is stated on the CAT Scale certificate (?).

This is from the CAT certificate:

Steer Axle: 2598.75
Drive Axle: 2221.00

On the spreadsheet I posted, under the "actual" column:

Front: 2598.75
Rear: 2871

The difference between that and the CAT print-out is the 650lb tongue weight, which I added in to give me an idea of what the rating would be if I owned the TT and pulled the TV/TT up to the scale. Since I do not yet own the TT, the best I can do is estimate what it will be.

Hi Dan,

Those are not the same CAT scale numbers that you have on post # 5. Which ones should be used?

The numbers in my last post are straight off the sheet. Post #5 was from yesterday.. I had (unsuccessfully) tried to recall the numbers from memory while I was at work.

Dan,

Thank you, now I see what your train of thought was behind the graph and how you used the CAT data.

The altering of the the TV's rear axle weight is what thru me off.., I'm from the school that only a CAT scale can confirm an axle weight so I took the axle weights as "actual" CAT data.

Based on your clarifications, please ignore the first two sentences in my prior post #27.

So, based on your assumed loaded TV GVW of 5,470lbs (30lbs under GVWR) you would be good to go assuming all other weight limits are not exceeded. IMO it will take considerable effort on your part insuring that your proposed TV/TT combination remains within specified limits, and many folks may find the process a little challenging.

I honestly feel that I would find using the Tacoma as a TV for the 26BH limiting my towing experince..., but that is just me.

I do appreciate the fact that you are taking the time to crunch all the numbers and I feel that you understand the weight limits that the Tacoma brings to the table..... and at the end of the day that's what is important.

Bob

I have one question, have you at some point calculated in the weight of the WDH? Mine weighs close to 100lbs, you are so close on all these numbers, if that has not been added to the GVWR of your TV it would easily push you over the limit.
