How many of you have weighed your vehicles ? fully loaded and ready for the next adventure . I think you might be surprised . If you are able try to weigh each corner or wheel of the Sportmobile and balance your goodie's accordingly .

OK, I need to ask... Where do you go to get weighed? One of those highway truck weigh stations? How does it work? Does it cost anything?

Most city's and county's have public scale's available for a small fee , which is very worthwhile in the long run . Another source of scale's is sometimes your local land refuge or bulk recycling center , I used to weigh all of my Vans and Pickup's at the Cal Trans Scale's , but am unsure if they still allow it for non commercial use .

I weighed my F250 at the local aluminum scrap yard, but the scale is raised with rails, so no corner weights. If you get a non-certified weigh (or weighs) at a truckstop they're cheaper than certified... not that I've ever done it.

Hmmm looks very familiar. My father had his BFG AT tread seperate at hwy speed on his 68' Dodge Townwagon. Needs body work now.
I myself have had numerous BFG failures in the last few years.
no longer a believer.

Thanks for the weighing info. I'll look out for scales the next time I'm at a truck stop. I couldn't find much info online here with the WA State DMV on using weigh stations for non-commercial purposes.
