I have a set of "weekend" tickets; a set of "week tickets" and a set of "LONG trip" (months) tickets.
I only reweigh when there has been significant changes to my load outs or new mods that alter the unloaded weight of the camper.
There have been changes as I am continually amending my checklists. New ones coming out (again) before the Goshen Rally (the start of a two month road trip to San Diego) and a reweigh is in my future for all three sets
Mostly the differences are in how much homemade wine and Limoncello I have on board. Several cases of wine does add a significant amount of weight and on long trips I am right at the max for truck AND camper payload.
While it is true that "less than max" is safe, I like to know where I stand for the three scenarios.
