I don’t know if it’s been done before or not but I was thinking about keeping a running list of real truck weights by year and type, and trailer weights by brand, size and what the total combined weight is of each guys rig. I was hoping the info would be a help for guys wondering about what the real weights are for a certain type of truck and to keep track of the more popular brand 5th wheel trailers. Another thing that will come out of it will be to see just how many guys really know what they are towing and if they know what their weight capacities are.
I’m sure it will take some time to compile a list and it will grow as guys add there info but I’m hoping it will help the newer guys in the long run to be directed back over to this thread in the future.
I’ll keep the TV lists to mainly the big 3 and from ¾ ton and up and I’ll try to keep the 5ers in a group by real GVW, length, and then manufacture. Any ideas are welcome as long as it makes things easier. And only real information can be given, so no guessing allowed. Only guys that have scaled there rigs or are totally certain of the weights.
Let’s see if I can keep the format real simple to type down and that will make it simpler for guys to refer back to and to keep track of.
Here we go……

TV - 2006 Dodge Mega Cab 3500 4x4, real scaled weight with full fuel, hitch, DH-DW and misc. gear = 7,500lbs. TV GVWR is 10,200lbs
5ver – KZ New Vision TH 38ft 14,500lbs loaded GVW. GVWR is 18,000lbs
Normal running TV & TH GCW weight= 22,500lbs, TV GCWR is 23,000lbs
Real Wet Pin Weight=2,950lbs

Just found out mine, trying to find where the weight is.....

TV 2007 Chevy CC D/A 4wd Dually with hitch, full of fuel, toolbox, 2 adults, 2 children, and dog. 8240lbs

5th Wheel -2007 KZ Sportsmen Sportster 37KGX3 - sticker weight dry 11,556. Sticker GVWR is 16,940. Actual scaled weight with all our clothes, food, etc and a golf cart, DRY!, 19,120. Sticker hitch weight 2940, actual 3520. I don't see a problem here. Looks normal. However the total weight on the axles is 15,600... that's 1,600 over the axle rating and 600 over the tire rating. I am at a loss. I hope it is scale error. I will be reweighing this weekend.

Total GCWR 27,220!!! Truck rated at 23,500. I have no idea where the weight is. I can only hope that the scale was wrong. We did not load 7500 lbs of gear in here. Not to mention the fact that all tanks were empty and I have a 110 gallon fresh tank.....

I have added Timbrens to help the loaded ride and keep the truck level. The stock tailgate is replaced with a Stromberg-Carlson flow thru gate. Running boards and tailgate are equal to the same weight of the stock tailgate.
