29HFS weight calculator

This is my second spreadsheet and I think, better than the other. I uploaded a .png file so you can see what the tool looks like. Funny the picture is larger than the actual Excel file.

It is for the 29HFS with a 270 inches or 22.5 feet length from tongue to center of the axle pair (wheel base), showing the exact points or storage locations from stim to stern were you put your cargo and how adding weight at those points affect balance.

I think a disclaimer is in order., So it is only a guide and if it produces results that contradict factory recommendations and ratings or actual weight measurements, those will prevail. You use it at your own risk.

It is loaded with some data, which you will have to change.

I can't upload and Excel file, so if you want to get it into your hands, PM me. I will send it to you.

It would take a little work to adapt this to the other models, but could be done.

It is designed for someone who has first actually weighed the unit (tongue and axle) to be able to weigh what is loaded to predict if limits have been exceeded and how well the load is balanced. You can see tongue weight ratio, etc.

Your unit might be slightly different, so those cells can be changed.

Be careful not to break a formula or calculation cell.

I weighed by 29 (or should that be my "35") today. I am going to make a new post for those interested.

I'd love to see the weights. Now, if you can put a Harley touring bike and a Can-am Touring in the garage.....

The combine right at 2000#. Placing the as far forward as possible, I would put the center of mass about 4' back from the front wall of the garage.

Yep, I'm all about maxing things out
