No but I suspect its every bit as heavy as they say it is at 870 lbs. I do notice with bikes loaded in the rear of mine it does pick up the tongue some if I have it hooked to the truck no WDH and jack on a block of wood to stabilize the trailer while loading. Raises it about 1/2" off the block of wood when the bikes are added. So trailer balance with a load is pretty good. My tundra on squats about 1" with the WDH on and a full tank of water and full load. Without the WDH no water just empty trailer is about a 2" squat on the truck. I can put a 425 lb motorcycle in the rear bed of my truck and get a 1" squat no trailer hooked up just a bike in the back so I know I'm around 500-600 lbs of hitch weight with camper and WDH, uneducated guess there.

Haven't weighed mine for tongue weight either.

However, weighed my unit recently when fully loaded for a trip with the Harley Ultra in the garage, 1/2 tank of potable water, pickup full of fuel and two in the cab total weight is 13,960 pounds.

The pickup alone w/3/4 tank of fuel weights right at 6,350 if I recall correctly.

That puts total trailer weight at 7,610 lbs.

Per factory specs:
Axle Weight (lbs.) 4,240
Hitch Weight (lbs.) 870
Dry Weight (lbs.) 5,110
GVWR (lbs.) 7,870
Cargo Capacity (lbs.) 2,760

my weight was within the guidelines with some leeway.

Thanks, thats some good info. I need to go weigh mine.

Looking at your numbers it looks like I'll probably be a little over the GVWR with my Ultra and my wife's Sportster in there.

I used to get things weighed at the grain elevator but was told they charge now.

Instead, went to the county landfill that does not charge. Person working there said their scale is calibrated by the same firm that calibrates the state road scales, etc. so accuracy should be spot on as legally, since the landfill charges with weight (same as a butcher) it must be accurate.

Most truck stops like Loves or Pilot have CAT scales. I need to weigh mine. My door sticker on camper with options says it weighs 5485. I'm pretty sure loaded I'm close to the gross vehicle trailer weight of 7870. I don't put anything in the truck except extra race gas cans of gas and maybe a ice chest cooler. Everything else is in the camper and most a of the junk is in that back room over and past the trailer axles. With 42 gallons of fresh water your looking at 371 lbs right there. I tote water pretty much every trip since this hauler is used almost always at a racetrack where power is all I have on site.

No Loves or Pilot truck stop within 200 miles of me & largest, nearest truck stop has no scale.

Actually, I was kinda surprised at my weight as been very frugal about what is loaded in the camper by keeping it pretty much to basic necessities.
