I went to the CAT scales today and weighed my truck in the exact configuration we will be towing. Me, wife, full tank of gas, some tools and the Andersen Ultimate. 2015 Chevy 2500 4x4 CC 6.0 gas with Curt gooseneck and Andersen Ultimate. Also have air bags with remote.
With a 9500 lbs GVWR, that leaves me 2,140 lbs for the pin weight. Sticker on the truck's B pillar says CCC is 2,791. Wife and I weigh 400 lbs so the actual CCC is 2,540 as configured. Not too bad considering everything I added.
Trailer is a 2021 Salem Hemisphere 290RL.
Here's the weight sticker on the trailer we are buying (9,772 dry weight):
Here's FR's specs for the trailer:
Hitch Weight: 1825 lb.
UVW 9919 lb.
CCC 2106 lb.
Exterior Length: 33' 8"
Exterior Height: 12' 7"
Exterior Width: 96"
Fresh Water: 57.00 gal.
Gray Water: 62.00 gal.
Black Water: 30.00 gal.
I plan to tow the trailer from Couch's RV to the same CAT scale I just weighed the truck.
So, any bets on what the actual pin weight will be? Hope it's not too much over 2,000 lbs.
