Loaded Tongue Weight 8329SS/832IKBS
Has anybody with either the Rockwood 8329ss or Flagstaff 832ikbs actually measured their loaded tongue weight on a CAT scale or similar? Unloaded tongue weight is 833# but with 2 full propane tanks, battery and 1000 pound load I am sure it would be more. Best guess it will weigh in loaded about 8500#. A tongue weight of 15% would put me close to 1250#
My TV has a 10,000/1,000 rating with the factory installed class IV hitch but two years later they offered the class V increasing the towing capacity to around 12,500/1250 or so. My TV is a 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty with 6.8 V10 and 3.73 gearing using a WDH similar to the Curt trunion style (mine is no longer in business but Curt is the same set up).
I have towed a 33' Terry with this set up for 14 years with no issues but I never put it on the scales. It has a dry weight of 7300# and estimate loaded was about about 9300-9500# including propane and 2 batteries. Back then everybody estimated tongue weight at 10% so I never gave it much thought.
I also just upgraded to the Prodigy P3 controller which should make a big difference over the Reese/Drawtite Activator I have been using for years.
