Pin Weight on Specific Model

I am trying to find the pin weight of a used '11 Flagstaff 8526RKWS Classic Lite I bought recently, and I'm coming up with numbers ranging from under 1,000 to over 1,500 lbs. Can't find the telephone number on the Forest River website to ask them. Anyone know the number? Thanks .... camp on!

The pin weight on that model is listed as 1515 lbs. That's the pin weight of that model as an unloaded fifth wheel.

That would be an unloaded UNMODIFIED 5th wheel with no dealer or factory installed options.

Better to find the maximum gross weight and multiply by 18% for a 5th wheel.

Better to get fully loaded loaded and then get it weighed. My listed dry pin weight 1,193 lbs, actual pin weight 1,994 lbs, 2012 V-Cross 275. Good Luck

I would send a PM to Dave_Monica on this site, he is the expert in my opinion on weights and things. He is the person that helped me, I was also all over place til he got me straightened out. He is the great on those questions......Tell him I said HI....
