Pin wt.

Being new to toy haulers and 3 axles I do not know what my pin wt. should be. Loaded the toys and almost everything else that we will be traveling with and went to a scale at a gravel yard. The trailer weighed in at 16,360lbs with 2,360 of that being the pin wt. The pin wt is a lot lighter then what I'm use to. Last 5th wheel was a hitchhiker that weighed 16,000 with 3,600 being pin wt on two axles. The trailer is towing ok, just want to make sure we are loading it right. Thanks for any input that you can share. The trailer is a thunderbolt 386x12 and I'm pulling it with a 3500 dodge dually.

That's only 14.4% pin weight. It's my understanding that for fifth wheels, it is supposed to be more than 15%.
