Could the CAT scale have been wrong?
I'm not sure how accurate the CAT scales are at the weights of our RV's. If say, they have a tolerance of +/- 5%, they could be 550 pounds off at MBS gross weight. I haven't been able to find much info on CAT scale accuracy.
We tow our Fit four-down, so the only weight we have added is the 50 pounds or so from the Blue Ox tow bar and hitch riser. None of the car weight is additive to the motorhome. We are using the Fit as a storage vehicle and trying to get more weight out of the MBS.
The yellow sticker on the drivers side door frame will indicate your Cargo Carrying Capacity. Ours is only 925 pounds - which is pretty meager.
