Loaded Weights on 35QBA - Surprising, in a Good Way
We've been living in our Silverback set up in our shop for a little while now. We've spent all that time loading, organizing, loading cargo trailer etc. I was cringing towards the end looking at how much stuff we had in the camper. Way different when living in it, and including all of the home school stuff. So, before leaving, I emptied all the tanks except enough in the fresh water tank to flush the toilet. Emptied water heater. Propane, only had about 1 tank at 25%. Figured it was easier to put everything we could possibly need, and empty liquid weight until I could weigh it. Finally hit the road to relocate today and took it to the CAT scales. The factory sticker is somewhere around 12,900 and some change dry, with around 2500 CCC. I was pleasantly surprised at these weights.
Pin Weight: 2680
Front Axle: 6080
Rear Axle: 5820
Total Weight: 14,580
Max Gross: 15,500
We have no need to add any more stuff, but at least I know I'll have no problems when I fill the propane tanks and I can leave the water heater full. I was glad to see I was way under on the 7k limit per axle.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
