Worn out 5th Wheel info panel, help

Need help with a worn out 5th Wheel info panel. The obvious info are wheel axle loading and tire size and pressure and total loaded max weight.

the last line

2690KG 600KG 2090KG

2690kg Would that be full load of water and waste,
600kg be ??
2090kb be dry?

Any help would be welcome,



Regards,

Izzit

First, if you need the conversion--multiply kilograms by 2.2 to get pounds...

The figures you have are probably: gross weight, 2690kg; carrying capacity 600kg; unloaded weight 2090kg. Note that adding the carrying capacity to the unloaded weight you get the gross weight. The 2 1591kg numbers are axles capacities. There is another modified number--3410kg--that looks like it was originally 3132kg and was changed for some reason. The tires originally were ST225x75R15, meaning they were
"Special Trailer" tires, 15" diameter. The wheels were 15" diameter x 6.0" rim width.
My only puzzlement is the 3410kg figure and what it represents--quite a bit more than the 2690kg for a potential gross weight number. On second look, the X'd out number is probably 3182, which is the combination of both axle ratings (2x1591)
Great that you have the original VIN visible for registration purposes.
What brand of trailer is it and where are you located? Odd for it to be in kg unless out of US.

The trailer is a 5th Wheel 27.5' Westwind 275, manufactured in 1995 by Kustom Koach a business vendor in Canada who sold its trailer manufacturing plant to Travelaire in 1997. It did include a ton of documentation but the main manual is rather generic and did not include any primary weights and or loading data.

I got a rather good deal on it and it is in really good condition and water tight. The only slightly bad part is I need to upgrade from my 01 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 4.8 motor to something with a larger engine and tow capacity.

I think you correctly interpreted the data as my interpretation was the same but the 3410KG is strange on its own.

Regards,

Joseph

I think it was stamped 3132 originally but may have been an error at the factory and then corrected to 3410. Just a thought.

Whatever the figure 3410 means, it looks like it was X'd out at the factory, as mentioned above. The X's are too neat and inline to have been done away from the factory.
Sounds like a neat unit, hope you get to use it and have some camping fun.

Found another piece of the puzzle! I found a 8.5" x 11" printed information sheet inside the closet. First photos I took were not legible I will retake them tomorrow and post them. The info is interesting and your input will be valued.
I am quite happy I found this forum.

Regards,

Joseph

That page gives you a LOT of info to help with later parts needs. I would start an internet search to locate the manuals for all the appliances, if they are still available online--should be somewhere.

Looking over the paper, you have a better idea of the weights now. Wing nut had a great idea about hunting down appliance manuals if any can be found. Happy rving!
