OK, with all the threads lately on weight issues I figured it was time I did mine. I unloaded ALL my stuff from the cargo bays. Drained my FW tank to about 10 gals. (84lbs), I had 3/4 tank of butane and a full tank of diesel. Got on the scales and here are my numbers.

Steer Axle = 10,080 lbs.
Drive Axle = 17,020 lbs.
Total weight = 27,100 lbs.

No one was inside the coach when it was weighed, I did have maybe 200lbs of blankets, towels, pots & misc. items.

Here are my stickers.

Here's the ticket from the scale.



Now for a couple questions,

1) Where do I find what my GCWR is?

2) To the guys that had the upgrade done. How far off were your weights? You can PM me if you don't want them public.

I'll be sending Randy an email with all of this info to see if I am eligible for the upgrade. I know I will be over once a load up for a trip.

ETA: I have a 2013 390BH, I have the 255 tires.Click image for larger version

CC you no doubt will need to be upgraded. It's good that you got it weighed. Please don't be offended by this question but you have been around for along time and have seen all the discussions on this subject.
What took you so long? I was frankly surprised when you posted this. I assumed that you had your done.
Let us know how it works out but with those numbers you need to have this done.

Phil, no offense taken at all. I just kept putting it off. There's not many scales where I live and I actually had to travel over an hour away from home today to get it done. No excuse, but I always thought I was good to go.

Joe you got that right, laid back is my middle name.

Phil can you post that picture of the phone numbers of the guys other than Randy. I have Randy's number but I also read that he was out of office for a couple of weeks.
