Trailer Weight

Where can I get the trailer weight ratings for my camper? I have a 21 ft Rockwood Roo travel trailer. I checked the forest river website but I could not find any contact info. The sticker on the side of the trailer is faded. Can anyone give me the information or know how to get it?

Thanks

You don't say what year your trailer is so this may apply and
it may not.

Go to the Forest river website found easily by googling forest river rv.

http://forestriverinc.com

Then click expandables
then click Roo
then click brochure
then click download
then look at the specs given in the brochure!

Happy Camping!
If you want a true weight then you should stop at a truck scales
found at many truck stops along the interstates.
The only way to know for sure what you weigh is to get weighed!
Gear, batteries, water, food and other stuff can add more than
you imagine. Also factory specs are subject to change without
notice.
Get weighed and you'll know.
It's easy and usually cost 7 or 8 bucks or less.

Welcome to the forum!!

I have a dumb question. How do you weigh a trailer? Meaning, do you need to fully disconnect from the TV?

Most truck scales today have 3 sections.
When I weighed my rig I had my truck front wheels
on the front section, my drive wheels on the middle
section and the trailer on the back section.
I did hurriedly crank down the tongue jack enough to
take the weight off the ball. The tongue jack was also
on the rear section.
Then I set the tongue back on the ball and had them
weigh me again. The difference in the rear weight was
my tongue loading more or less.

It cost $8.50 for
the 1st weigh and $1 for the second reading.

Total time no more than a few minutes. They were
very friendly.
My only problem was reaching WAY up to press the
intercom button. It's set about 8 feet above the ground
so the 18 wheelers can reach it from their cab!
When you go inside to pay you get a paper print out
with certified weights from each scale and time and
date stamp.

Everyone should get weighed!
I was pleasantly surprised that my trailer weighed less
than I had imagined. And that was with 1/2 tank of
water and full gear and food for a long weekend.

Steer axle 2800
drive axle 3020
Trailer axle 4020
Total 9840

Have you looked inside all cabinets and closets?
Many trailers will have a 2nd sticker inside somewhere-
usually on the inside of a cabinet or closet door.
