Wildcat weight

Just curious how close the weight sticker is to the actual weight. My 7,320lb 27rl seems to pull just as hard as my deck over with a load weighing at 13k. Maybe it's just that it's a wind sail.

The weight sticker is the weight minus battery, propane, and any dealer items installed. I weighed my evo on the way home when I first picked it up and it was about 200 lbs heavier than the sticker. I added dual tanks, dual batteries, and a wdh at the dealer. Seems pretty close to me as far as my EVO goes.

The frontal area of the camper and the drag it produces is comparison to a low deck trailer or car hauler.
