When we toured the factory in Aug, weighting the unit was the last thing they did to the trailers before it was pulled out the door.
Magic Balls. I thought all the guys at FR had magic balls and could tell what we would load.
Point taken- I didn't write what I meant. You're right- the stickers shouldn't be bashed. They're pretty spot on. Heck, in the case of advertising- even the dry weight was pretty well spot on with what my camper was delivered with. Definitely confirmed.
I meant that the numbers and whole weighing process gave a lot of credence to the point that using the dry weights of stuff (if your goal is to stay within ratings (aka lawyer stickers)) is a crap-shoot. In my case, the pin weight numbers were 500-700 pounds different when loaded up.
