I took 300lbs of cinder cap blocks out of it when I got home so this should help with my truck weight and axial weight.

My rear axle has a 9750lbs GAWR on a DRW truck, what this shows is my truck is at 13,680 which is close to the 14,000 GVRW.

Pin weight is 3820

Trailer axle weight is 11,700

So knowing the weight of my truck before the 5th was hooked up it shows my trailer at 15,680.
All with in the legal limits and with in Ram/ SAE J2807 specs.

You definitely have her loaded up!
Interesting to see your pin weight is right in the 20% to 25% range of
the trailers 16000 GVWR.

You have the truck for the job so travel with no worries.

We have the same truck and I am a little lighter than you now as I just unloaded a bunch of "stuff" I have not used in a year. I will re-weigh when we get to Corpus.

How did you determine pin weight?

By the added weight on my rear axle, on the first weigh ticket it shows 4500lbs. I took and additional 200 lbs off so it was 4300 and the 2nd is 8120

8120
- 4300
= 3820

Because it's a 5th wheel, some of that pin weight transfers to the front axle too. So, I think you are at 3980, using your numbers. Still good.


Your numbers are real close to my F450 with my 3950, ie, too close to tell a difference.

My front axle weighed the same loaded or empty . I was at 3480# hitch weight but now a little heavier with more added to front storage. My rv weighed 16,200 which is 200# over the gross of 16,000 for my model 3402. My truck weighed 9900 with full of fuel and wife and I. My axles were at 12,720 and gcw of 26,100. My gvw of truck was 13,380. I'm running a little heavy over all but with the I.S. and disc brakes I feel very comfortable when travelling. Glad to see a few guys weighing their rigs because if you don't weigh then you don't know.

My 16 2500 Megacab 4x4 was over weight with this 5th, thatís why I sold it and bought this 18 1ton Dually.

Yep, same here. When I realized my actual 3/4 ton max payload was around 1300 lbs. I upgraded to a SRW. Then bought a 3120 which matches a SRW real fine. Of course, I had to fight the wife, the GM dealer and the trailer dealer, to get er done...ha haaa.
