Mike,

These guys are the ones who do the weighing at RV events:

http://rvsafety.com/weighing-schedule/

Their home is Merritt Island, FL and they will do weighing there with an appointment.

I just had my coach weighted at the FMCA Rally in Albany,Or (4 corner wt) and I'm over wt in the rear by 1150lbs and under in the front by 730lbs. In January I got a new set of Michelin 295/80R22.5 XZA2 with a max PSI of 120lbs.
With a combined wt of 33,620lbs
FR 6,405lbs-FL 6,065lbs RR 10,195lbs-LR 10,955lbs
I have to run 105 PSI in the front and 100 PSI in the rear. This is the only way to get a true wt reading and know what PSI to run, money well spent. Must be the new steel and copper radiator and not the way the wife packed the coach being overloaded

If you have a moving company nearby, Mayflower, United, etc., they typically have scales suited to four corner weighing. If you call and ask, they'll probably say no because they're only accustomed to weighing an entire truck. But their scales are usually situated for ease of access by different size vehicles, which means they have plenty of space on both sides. I found that going to their location to explain to them what I wanted to do was all that was needed, and they were more than happy to accommodate me. Just be prepared to pay for each weight ticket. My local outfit charged me $10 a ticket, $40 total. Still much cheaper than a blown tire.

I just weighed mine, here is how I did it...

front axel
rear axel
whole coach
front drivers side
front passengers side
rear drivers side
rear passengers side

Took a little while but they only charged me $10


The scales were surrounded by dirt/gravel (and a little un-even) so
I don't think the measurements on the 4 points are very accurate.

I will re-weigh when I can find a set-up with more concrete around it.

Anyone know of one you like on Hwy 5 in Oregon or Washington?

there is a scale that you have to drive up on so that can't be done then there is a state highway scale and I don't think they will let me take that much time since truck's will be coming threw .
I think im going to get the rv weighed at the highway scale they will weigh front and rear axle's and the in a few month's when heading north I will stop by the link that is posted above for the 4 corner weight , of course unless I can find a 4 corner weight place within 1 hours north or south of me " west palm beach ,fl " so if anyone has one to share please let me no

Thank you
mike

Josam in Orlando does alignments and four corner weights. May not be SE enough for you though.

It is a bit of a drive, but Josam's (8849 Exchange Drive 407-438-9281) in Orlando will do it (as well as front end alignment). It is definitely worth having it done and then redone in about a year or so after you have really "moved in". It does give you another reason to go to WDW, Universal, Sea World, bla bla.
