Tongue weight

Good morning, i have a 23 ft shamrock and after weighing the tongue weight disconnecred from TV and without water and with full propane tanks it weighs 710 lbs. I estimate i have 100 lbs gear in front of the axels. The a-frame coupler has a max tongue rating of 700 lbs. I was wondering what other campers tongue weight is and what their coupler is rated for? Thanks.

Do not think I have ever looked at the coupler rating.. Does it change with wd or no wd? I know most receivers do on the tow veh.

It has a 2"ball with a 6000 lb. rating. The weigh would change but the rating would stay the same.

2" on smaller trailers and 2 5/16" on most others.

Rebel, in your previous posts, you said you had a 26' Shamrock.
Which is it? And have you identified which 2002 model it is?
A 26' trailer should have a 2 5/16" ball.
Also, it sure would help if you posted pics of the inside, to help identify what model.
