Thumbs up Weighing in.....

Twice I've gone to CAT scales to weigh in my rig and check the WDH. I ring the bell and the sweet lady sez....."sorry hon, you don't have enough combined weight"....Really????

TT is a a 154BH (2,550#)

TV is a Volvo S60 2.5T AWD (3,500# Towing capacity)

So today I unloaded and weighed EVERTHING and was pleasantly surprised to find ALL of our camper gear, outdoor furniture, is under 130#

Towels, clothing, food, linens under 70#

WDH, bolt-on gear under 80#

(3) Occupants = under 490#

Although the vehicle towed fine....I was concerned we were running al lot closer / over capacity last year.....not scientific, but I feel a little better now.
