Really just wanted to share. At 10,5k lbs on the trucks axles I am over weight by 500lbs. Might have something to do with all the propane and wood in the bed... The trailer weight is just fine at 8.5k lbs. I guess I could have transferred some more stuff in the trailer but probably no more then 500 lbs worth. Truck towed it great other then it being a bit squirrelly in the 35mph gusts every once in a while. Engine doesn't really care and it stopped great too.

The trailer was full of water 106Gal and full of fuel 30Gal. With enough food and drinks for 4 people for 8 days. The only toys inside it was one 260lb dirt bike. All this stuff adds up fast!

It was about 120 miles to camp mostly uphill and my mpgs on the lie o meter was at 8.5. Not super sweet but hey its not about the journey.

Here a pic of the weigh slip and the rig.
