Weighing question

I've weighed our MH twice before with the toad attached and was never overweight but plan on weighing it again before a long trip just to see if we've added much since the last time it was weighed. The toad weight shouldn't change so is it necessary to weigh it with the MH again? Where I weigh I can get the toad on one scale and separate weights for each MH axles. Thoughts appreciated.

If you're towing 4 down or with a dolly, the toad has negligible impact on the axle weights.

Only the toungue weight for the toad will affect the axle weight of the moho. I imagine it will add a few pounds to the rear axle(s), and subtract a few pounds from the front axle. I would expect overall weight change to be less than 50 lbs, depending on your towing setup.

The only tongue weight on a dingy tow is the weight of the tow bars and cables, not more than 50lbs (some of it is supported by the toad).

Since I throw a lot of stuff in the toad it actually lowers the weight of the coach.
