Glad I could help. The CAT scale locator is an excellent resource. I didn't think we had any nearby CAT scales, until I used that online locator.....I have a scale 21 miles away.....I had no idea. I am going to use that shortly instead of the local rock quarry this time. I have to setup a new hitch head assembly. I am getting good fender measurements, but I want to confirm my results via the scales.

"There's an app for that."

I have the CAT locator app on my (android) phone. Makes it easy to put into Google maps.

Update : Steve from Forest River got back to me yesterday afternoon and told me that they are sending me out a new set of stickers for the TT. Apparently they are all wrong - not just the yellow one. Hopefully when the new ones arrive I will have more than 37KG cargo capacity lol.

Thanks all for the help and input!

Great, you might want to let them know how little your dealer cared about the situation.
this should have been handled by the selling dealer and not you.

Glad to hear that FR came through.
It will be nice to have the correct numbers.

Use the CAT website to learn how to use the scales before going. Here are some helpful links.

Got the new stickers in the mail today. My dry weight didn't change but the GVWR went up by 1600# - which now gives me 1681# of cargo capacity. Should I put the new stickers right over top of the old ones or remove the old ones first? Not sure how hard they are to remove. I made one more phone call to FR to make sure they understand that my dealer wasn't interested in helping me through this - not sure if they care or not - they certainly didn't give me the impression that it was a concern to them.

I would give the old sticker a wipe with 95% or higher Ispropyl Alcohol to remove the wax and stick it right on top.
