I took the TT and TV to a CAT scale today and weighed it as it sits.
The trailer is pretty much loaded with what we take. There normally would be some groceries and maybe 20 pounds of clothing.
The truck had a full tank of fuel and me in it. Wife would add a bit more but she is pretty petite.
We have travelled using the Rick Steves method of packing and enjoy travelling light.
Here are the numbers:
F150 with just me and the drawbar from heck attached= 6040 pounds
Weight of truck with TT attached= 6760 pounds
Weight of TT attached to TV = 5780
So if I do my maths correctly the tongue weight = 720 pounds
Trailer weight without being attached to truck = 6500 poiunds
Labelling on the TT claims a dry weight of 5890 and a capacity of 1250 for cargo so we have about 610 pounds of cargo.
We have about 11% tongue weight.
I have all four trailer tires at 65 psi. This is max inflation but the tires are nowhere near the max weight capacity, so the tire may be overinflated.
On method of checking for correct tire inflation is to make a mark across the tread with a paint stick. Then drive straight about 100 feet the check the paint lines. If they are worn only in the center, they are overly inflated, if worn on the side of the tread then under inflated. If worn evenly then you are about right. Does anybody still do it this way?
Here is a link to my truck ratings.
