26DB Toy Hauler.

Model 26DB

Unit Type TT
Hitch Weight 1,065 lbs.
Number of Axles 2
Total Axle Weight 6,131 lbs.
Total Ship Weight 7,196 lbs.

GVWR 11,225 lbs.
Cargo Capacity 3,420 lbs.
Exterior Length 30 ft. 8 in.
Box Length 26 ft. 2 in.
Cargo Length 11 ft. 7 in.
Fresh Water Capacity 66 Gal.
Black and Gray Capacity 31/31 Gal.

Understanding this right.

Total capacity = 11,225.

My load at on any given trip includes:

2 ATV's = 2k
Full load of water = 525lbs
Generator = 200lbs
2 84 Qt ice chests = 400.00 (both stuffed w/ice)
Gear/Clothes/Food = 3-500lbs (I bring an extra grill, extra tables, etc.)
Tool Box = 250lbs.

Total = 3875.
Shipped = 7196

Total = 11,071

Think I'm pushing it a little? Times when I bring extra's like... more beverage, extra fuel and other stuff to complicate the trip I'm on would indeed push me over the GVWR.

I try to keep the cargo spread as much as I can but the ATV's and the bigger stuff has to ride in the garage.

The only way to know for sure what your loaded weight will be is to weigh the unit loaded and ready.

You're using the shipping weight from the mfg. Keep in mind that it doesn't include propane, battery(s), fuel, etc. If your numbers are correct for everything else you're proably going to e overweight.

Cat Scales have lots of locations so I'd suggest finding one and making a trip to get your unit weighed.

I'm heading out in the morning for a 2 day ride in the Osceola forest. I hope I can find a scale on my way out.

I'm not loaded to the gill like I would be on a 3-5 day ride so this would be a good time for me to check total weight.

You are fine, you are not even at GVW yet. Those 2 ATV don't weigh 2K. Tha Suzuki is going to weigh about 550 wet and the AC might weigh 700 wet. I have 2 polaris ATV's, the heaviest quads out there and they don't even come close to 2K. Load her up head out and have fun. I was supose to go out to the mountains this weekend quading, but it snowing big there, and after about 6" of snow, the quads are done. Have fun.
