Not on the qbok but I do have real world pin weight on the 34REQS. Loaded fiver weight of 12,380 lbs. Loaded pin weight of 2620 lbs. These were cat scale weights, loaded ready to camp minus food.

Got the rig weighed in today.

From previous weigh,

2015 ram 3500 ccsb CUMMINS 4wd.

Myself and a 3 yo and Hensley bd3 hitch.

8840lbs.
11,700 gvwr.

Trailer hooked up, almost bare empty.

11320 on the truck.
So, very close to gross.
Combined was 21k.

So, the pin is almost 2500lbs.
Brochure stated 1950 or so.

I have added front ac and there were a couple things in the basement.

The search is on!
Either a dually or trade the camper on something smaller.
I'm staying under gross.

With my set up, total gross is 17,000 flat.....Move south! The ice will melt!

So, moral of the story, never believe written weights. Usually a vast difference.

Pm Qccowboy, I believe he has a 36qbok.
He might be able to give you some insight.

Find a Sherline gauge and check the pin weight yourself. If you are going to the Mayberry rally, I will give Glenn or Bob my gauge and you can check it.

I got the weights now.
I weighed the truck.
I added trailer.

It's just a pig heavy trailer.

I just don't get, how they can be SO FAR OFF the listed weights.
