Man that looks huge inside, be sure to post a weight if you get a chance to hit the scales, were car shopping and the one we want it going to be close.
I have 6000lbs to play with and keeps me under the GCWR so I may have to just go on the light side when traveling.
We were on our way home yesterday and stopped at a CAT Scale. I wanted to see where our actual weight was. We had a pretty typical load - maybe a few pounds lighter than normal since we didn't have a week's worth of food in the tt or any fire wood in the truck, but I think we were pretty close to what we normally travel with (propane 1/2 full, no water). The trailer axles came in at 5200 lbs even. I didn't do a full weighing procedure - needed to get back on the road, but based on my truck weight last trip to the landfill, I estimated the tongue weight was between 600 and 700 lbs.
GVWR of the 21IKSS is just over 6400, so we were good there and the truck is rated to tow 7,300 so no issue with that or the CVWR. I thought maybe we would be close on the rear axle. Actually the front and rear were just about equal, but we are right at the GVWR for the truck. We sometimes have the kayak rack and 3 kayaks which adds almost 250 lbs, so I might try to shift some weight around and get a little more onto the trailer axles, but I was glad to get real numbers and know exactly what is going on.
The 23IKSS has a ton of storage, and we have used a lot of it, but still right about 6,000 lbs. Nothing would be worse than having lots of storage and not being able to use it because the trailer can't handle the weight...
