The hitch is still in storage with the 5th wheel, so I'd est another 200lbs for that on the rear. Which would bring the wet weight to around 8,900lbs solo.
I don't have actual on the 5th wheel, but the spec states 7,900lbs dry and 2,600lbs cargo for a total of 10,500lbs at 18% would be an approx pin weight of 1,900lbs. I would est the weight of our runabout boat at 2,500lbs or less.
-10,500 5th wheel
= 1,000 left for wife and kids.
Loaded 5th wheel and boat were probably figured on the high side. So assuming everything will axle, out, we are within spec....but not by much.
I'm curious now as to the actual weight of the coach when loaded, we don't carry much on board as we only take short trips, so I'm guessing it'll be under 10,500lbs. But little things add up quick, so I may be mistaken.
