Has anyone weighed a loaded 23IKSS yet?

And if so, what did it weigh? Packing mine up with a bigger load this time and curious - thanks!

We weighed ours Sunday. We have quite a bit of gear that always travels - chairs, tools, dishes plus we 5 days of clothes and probably about 2/3 full on the pantry and fridge. Not a max load, but reasonably full. 1/2 full on propane, 2 batteries, and nearly empty fresh water, empty holding tanks.

Trailer axles were 5240 and I estimated the tongue at 700 give or take 50lbs. I did not unhook and weigh the truck, but I have weighed the truck before, so my tongue weight estimate should be close.

That puts us at 5940 with a GVWR of 6400, so it looks like you can load it up pretty good, but its not unlimted...

Thanks KMP44! That helps a lot and fits with the first weight that we took with a fairly light load. We were only at 5525 on a short 4 day trip with a tongue load of about 585. Planning on even more fun this time!
