Sherline weight was 750 pounds.
Using wife as a test (120 pounds)- she stood in the rear of the unit and the tongue weight dropped to 700 pounds.
22 Tundra - height to bottom of rear real well molding was 38 inches.
Same measurement with unit hitched and equalizer installed was 37 inches - so a drop of 1 inch.
I never keep the propane tanks full (but I live in Florida). I alternate tanks and only put in 4 gallons when one tank needs propane. I do keep my water heater filled. I keep 5 gallons in my black tank. The other tanks are empty when traveling. I typically will use my sherline scale once a year, when I know the TT is loaded at it's heaviest. My tongue weight is around 650lbs. Unit weighs approximately 4,400 lbs at cat scale with good balance on both drive and rear axels. I also tow with either a 2008 DC Tundra or 2016 CM Tundra. With my weight distribution set up, the truck stance is pretty level.
If you haven't done so, I recommend that you take it to a Cat Scale. Get the app, it's an easy process.
Happy, safe travels.
