Motorhome Weight

Does anyone know what my 40 ft. Overland Osprey might weigh?

Can't seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks all...

Motorhome Weight

Go to a truck scale. Then you can weigh the front end, the rear end and the whole coach. Good to know. That's what I did and many others here too. If you are able, weigh each corner. Some have done this.

Otherwise, my factory info is on a sticker in the coach, up front by the driver's seat.

Their "should" be a label in the coach, perhaps behind some curtains?

Yep, and haven't seen one yet, without a label somewhere, but these figures are for curb weights and max. loads, not what the rig's axles actually weigh fully loaded, so that one might air up their tires properly.

Our weights sheet is on the inside of our 1/2 bath medicine cabinet door. Go figure.

Keep looking, it's somewhere. Do you have kids or grand-kids?

Send them looking for it. Kids love a challenge like that.

The only one who would know what YOUR coach weighs is the person reading the scale readout when you pull onto the scale. There is a data plate somewhere near the driver's seat that shows the weight ratings (GVWR, GAWR), and there might be a sheet of paper somewhere in a cabinet that shows what the factory thinks the coach weighed after it left the assembly line, but before the dealer added any items, like fuel, propane, batteries, and any other dealer-supplied options, and definitely before you added water, clothes, tools, food, kitchen items, keepsakes, etc.

As others have said - get it weighed! Many service places have scales, or can tell you where to find some.

Mine is at several places. I have a page pasted in the bedroom closet and a tag on the wall by the driver under the dash. It gives the gross ratings, etc. Like all said take it to a truck stop and weigh it. I was out running around in it and went by the local flying j truck stop. Ten bucks and the paper I got showed the total weight and the break down of each axle. I had full fuel and a full fresh water tank. It was loaded with everything kept on it between camping places. My gross on the paper shows max as 29,700. It weighed 25,120 that day. I wanted my weight to be sure my tires were properly inflated. I don't think I will add enough food and a wife to max out.
