now i am trying to figure out how much was not in when the factory weighted the trailer. cause it loos like i have to remove 1700lbs of stuff to there.
this is why i am bothered buy this sticker
i am getting a lot of information here keep it coming
So did you weigh the truck without the camper on its back?
Did you weigh the camper connected without the toys onboard?
Sounds like the sticker is not the problem; but the load plan.
I included a Word form that I use to keep track of my weights (truck and camper). This one shows I needed to put the camper on a diet.
Here are some threads that apply to your issue:
A visit to a CAT scale.
Remember you need multiple passes with the SAME LOAD. This is best done all at the same time by weighing both connected; then off the scale; drop the trailer and weigh just the truck. (Costs an extra dollar for a reweigh within 24 hours.)
Front truck wheels on plate one; rear wheels on plate two and camper wheels on plate 3.
A travel trailer needs 3 passes and a 5th wheel needs two.
Pass one: Truck with camper connected - WD bars ON
Pass two: Truck with camper connected - WD bars in the pickup's bed
Pass three: Truck only (2 plates used) - drop travel trailer in lot and go back and weigh.
Pass one: Truck and Camper connected
Pass two: drop camper and weigh truck only.
For toy haulers I would add another with the toys removed.
