Pin Weight

Has anyone, that owns a 5er- Flagstaff- 8528RKWS or a Rockwood 8280WS,had their units weighted loaded ready to go ? I'm interested in the actual pin weight.

Wish I could say yes to answer your question, but I can't. I can say that with the rear kitchen and the weight that is added in that area when I'm packed, it seems to offset the weight in the front. My ride height doesn't change empty vs loaded.

I have a 2014 8528RKWS. I weighed it on a Oregon DOT highway scale and came up with 1550 lb pin weight and a 8450 pound trailer weight loaded like I normally travel. I have 2 group 27 batteries and a good size sliding toolbox full of stuff in the front storage compartment. Black and gray tanks were empty but I had about 10-15 gallons of fresh water in the tank as I recall.

Hope that helps.
