weight problem solved (ish)

I have solved (mostly I thin) my weight problem. I was over on GVWR and under on anything else. Which we have discussed ad Nauseum on other posts. SOOO, being the inventive soul that I am, I post the pic below.
Bassically, I took everything that weighted anything and put in a diamond plate box on the back. So now there is NOTHING in the truck and very little in the front of the TT. The rack has a 250 lb capacity excluding the spare.

I will Weigh things on Tuesday, but am sure that my 460 lb overage will be 100 lbs or less.

When you get things weighed be sure to get the weights on each trailer axle so you can calculate individual tire load as you may find you have traded an overweight tow vehicle for over loaded tires.
I write a blog on RV tire application and safety.
Also give seminars on tires at RV events across the US. 40 years experience as tire design & quality engineer for major tire mfg. Freelander 23QB on Chevy chassis is my RV
