Weighed the F350 and Fiver today
Well, I decided to go ahead and get it all weighed today, so I hitched up and drove down to the Cat Scale about an hour away. Here are the weights;
Hitched to fifth wheel without driver, without passenger, but with a half tank of diesel. Truck GVWR is 11,500.
Steer axle 4740
Drive axle 5800
Both trailer axles weighed together 9460
Then I unhitched and weighed truck alone. This time with driver (225) but no passenger but with half tank of fuel
Steer axle 4940
Drive axle 3440
This gives me a pin weight of 2360 (payload is 3532)
Total fiver weight 11,820, and Fords specs are 15,700 max fiver tow weight. Somewhat lightly loaded because the refer wasn't loaded for a trip.
There is a small inaccuracy due to DW being unavailable at the time, (125lbs) and I had to get out and walk up to the scalemaster to get weight ticket the first time. The second time I called them on phone so I was sitting in drivers seat for the weight. Not a big deal really.
So, overall, it appears that I'm well within the trucks ratings, and also within the camper tire ratings. I'm making some assumption there based on camper axle weights, and an apparent good reserve on the tires. Actual weight on axles is 9460, and tires are rated at 3420 each. I'm glad I weighed it, because I feel a little better now just knowing.
Anyway, I hope this data might help someone else.
