Hi, Just got back from the Dealer with my TT.
I brought my bathroom scale and I weighted the tongue with a lever that gave me 1:4 ratio, tested it with myself and some objects and it was surprisingly accurate.
So after weight it like 10 times at the dealership with diffrent angle and then at my home in the street, i had about 145-158lbs on the scale never reaching 160. So approx 580-630lbs of Tongue Weight. My max allowed with WD kit is 700lbs. So its a pass! My sherline tongue scale is in the mail.....
Next I drove it for about 40 miles with cross winds of approx 30-35mph, I only felt a tiny bit of sway one in a while, nothing much. I only have one friction anti-sway on the left side only, and I wasent much tightned. So ill play with it and or buy another one next spring. I could seriously drive my truck with only my thumb and index with my right hand resting on my lap. (I dont plan on driving like that with my TT, was just used as a reference)
Next I went on the gouvernment semi truck scale truck only with full tank of gas and me 3140kg -> 6900lbs my GVWR is 8600lbs.
Truck with TT hooked = 5560kg -> 12232 lbs so with my GF plus some other stuff 12500 MAX and our GCWR is 13500lbs. Which gives me about 1000lbs more stuff to bring. Not gonna be the case here, I like to travel light. I had some water putted in the TT by the dealer, so i wasent dry of water but dry of luggage....
I know a 122'' wheelbase vehicule that tow a 33' TT is not the greatest on paper but the fact that my truck is more heavy that my TT is a plus imo.
All my tow specs are a PASS and im happy with it. Reseted the fuel used and fuel economy reading and got about 10mpg not too shaby.
Trans temps are gonna be easy to monitor i have a analog trans temp gauge factory.
