overweight fine

What that statement on the weigh ticket is saying, is if you get fined for weighing more than what the scale recorded you at, CAT will represent you in court to fight the fine.

Yep a certified CAT scale guarantees the weight for the truckers. You could be a million pounds over in an rv, Mr. FDOT doesn't even look twice.

Trk Weight

You guys are all smarter then me, I bought the Wolf Pack 28wp to haul my street glide but my F-150 will barely pull it, so now I can't haul the toy without an upgrade. Learning the hard way

Moodman i do not see what you are see, and it may also explain why you may feel the way you do, you have never seen a scale sheet before? This person was smart and took his rv and truck to a scale house and had his trailer weighted and this proves the point you can not believe a word from anyone involved with the rv about weights!

Everyone should take the trailer and TV to a scale house and do the same thing this person did, it is the only way to really know what all the weights are for (your couch) I did this some time ago at the same company, so i have the sheets.

The only thing you might be looking at is (if this was a class 8 heavy haul truck) not any type of rv!

G, with your 3500 (right?) you shouldn't need more WDH... you won't even know it back there (how many times have we heard that one!)

My WDH is rated at 1,200 lb and tongue weight is 1,520 lb?
If I can keep my old WDH I will.
