So who all have weighed their tow vehicle

I was curious as to how much the new to us F250 weighed given it has a 9600lb GVWR so I took it to the local landfill and had it weighed.

I was suprised to say the least when it showed 7374 lbs on the scale with a full tank and no one in it.

That was a suprise given our old 2008 Dodge 2500 Megacab 4x4 hemi weighed abt 6800 with a full tank and the DW and I in it, but it only had a gvwr of 8800. But it is 1.1 inches longer than the Ford.

The Dodge was a loaded Laramie and the Ford a loaded Lariat FX4, neither has a sunroof or rear seat entertainment systems and both have 3.73 gearing.

2005 Nissan Titan. All ready to go camping with wife, 6392 lbs. gvwr is 6522 which every time I go I am overloading the truck by the time I hook my toy hauler to it. Nothing I can do about it now I just have to be careful. I guess the only thing I have working in my favor is I am still 1000 lbs under gcwr.

I've got a similar truck with the 6.2L except its 4 X 4, not FX4. I weighed in ready to tow at 7760, my GVWR is 10000.

Hi

Do what Herk did and go to a Catscale and get the truck and trailer weighted so you know for sure. I was not sure about doing this but they know you are not a commercial trucker.

Weigh both then unhook and weight the truck. You can mathematically figure out the rest and if you are stopped you have it to show the authorities.

The cost was about $20.00 all in. Cheap and better than guessing.
