And exactly how would a person know this without having a place to weigh both sides?

Where would you find such a place to weigh side to side along the road? Or, a place to weigh each tire? I think a lot of our readers would like to know that. Your info would really help.

It is extremly difficult to find a way to weigh each wheel position without individule scales. A platform scale is not designed to drive off center. A company called RVSEF is the company that does attend some of the larger rallies and besides giving a safety seminar, does the weighing of each wheel position. To my knowledge, there are only 3 or 4 more couples/companies on the road doing this type of weighing. With the numbers we see when we weigh,this service should be much easier for folks to get. We have weighed people who have told us they have been trying to get each wheel weighed for over 2 years, looking for someone to do it. You would think all RV service centers would own a set of scales, but they are pretty expensive, and for some reason, they won't spend the money. We have been called in to weigh a side to side trailer, for a warranty claim. The springs were braking, twice, and the manufacturer was sure they were overloaded, they were not!!
