understood, however, your missing my point, the dry is 7400 +/- empty, he's getting 7400 loaded, so that's where I'm a little perplexed with the weights.

am I missing something?

From the scale numbers above, the 7,400 pounds of weight is *only* the weight being carried by the axles. It does not include the 800 pounds or so of to the weight giving him an actual camper weight of 8,200 pounds.

The 7,400 pounds from the PTM website include the hitch weight.

So, you would be comparing the scaled weight PLUS to the weight of approximate 8,200 pounds against the PTM advertised dry weight of 7,400.

At least that's my understanding.
