Lacrosse 329BHT Weight

We have a 2015 329BHT and really like it. There are no scales within 75 miles of here and I was wondering if anyone had gotten a true weight on theirs. The 8700 pound sticker seems like it is on the low side. I loaded a 1500 pound pallet in the back of my truck this afternoon and it squatted it less than the trailer does even with the weight distribution hitch on. I know the hitch is out of adjustment (something else to mess with next weekend), but I am trying to get a better idea before I have a chance to scale it next month.

Sometimes you can find a feed store or a local dump that you can weigh at.

Dropping 915 lbs on a hitch behind the rear axle will "squat" the truck more than putting 1500 lbs IN the bed. That load will partially be in front of the rear axle and therefore supported on the front suspension.

I thought about that. So I pulled it back until it was partially on the tailgate to make sure that nothing was in front of the rear axle. I send a couple of tons of aluminum to the recycling yard every month so I will try to run it by there and let them weigh it - but with the way they pay sometimes their scale might report that it only weighs 3000 pounds .

Does anyone know where the water tank is on the 329?
