Proof of empty weight for 2002 Monaco Diplomat

I just purchased a 2002 Monaco Diplomat 40PBT and trying to register it through online in South Dakota. I sent everything I had in but theyíre telling me they need the empty shipping weight which Iím not sure where to find it. I have a placard behind drivers seat but it only has the GVWR. I know I can bring it to a weigh station but Iím not able to at moment because itís having some work done on it. Does anyone else know if there is anywhere to find the empty shipping weight? Thanks

Gonna need to get it weighed and provide weight ticket

2002 Monaco Diplomat Brochure only lists GVWR/GCVWR/FAWR/RAWR
Nothing about UVW/DRY weight/Shipping weight etc

REV Group wouldn't have that info since they acquired Monaco in 2013

look around on interior cabinet doors. I have a label from Mfg listing empty weight, UVW, (and other weights) from factory on the inside of my bathroom upper cabinet doors.

Monaco lists the same 32,000# GVW for all 2002 Diplomats from 34' all the way to the 40' triple slide.
So any weights you find from Monaco are going to be a ball park figure.
I'd use the listed GVW of 32,000 and subtract 8,000.

Sadly the sales brochure doesn't list UVW. So obtaining a weight ticket when the coach is empty is likely the only option.

Even the service manual does not identify UVW, even though on page 50 it talks about weights, including UVW and CCC.

Yeap. For the 2002 model year, the RVIA required the manufacturer to provide a weight placard that included UVW among several other weights (GVWR, CCC, SCWR, Water weight, etc). Usually inside one of the interior cabinets.

If a weigh station receipt is all you need maybe a friend with similar coach would share? No personal info on the receipt.

Heck I would send you one of mine but my coach is 47K pounds so that won't help OP much.
