Apex Nano 191 RBS - Tongue Weight Question

Hi All,

I have a quick question regarding the tongue weight on our 191 RBS

According to the Coachmen website it is 406 lbs. Is that measured with the battery & a full propane tank?

I am going to take our trailer to a CAT scale this weekend just so I know exactly where we are. I am first going to weigh our tow vehicle, then I will return with the trailer and weigh both. I can then do the math and see where our 191 is actually at. I am not sure if you can use the scales to measure just the tongue weight on it's own.

Thanks & Happy Friday

Not the battery but should include full propane tank.
They didn't used to include full tank, just empty tank.
But they changed that a few years ago, since that is a known amount.

But loaded for camping, that 406 could balloon up to 600lbs quite easily.

Thanks for the quick reply,

I actually found a method of checking tongue weight on a CAT scale by performing 3 separate measurements. I will give this a try tomorrow
