We have a few weight stations outside of town that you just roll up to and your weight displays for free. We stop at them once and a while, but apparently I’ve never stopped with the motos on the back like I did last weekend. The number caught me off guard. We were 10,041 total. 03 eb cargo, 7.3, ccv fiberine poptop, no buildout, but have 3-3 person benches and a small rv table. Guessing I had about 30g of fuel and about 5g of water plus basic camping crap.

Was that with you in it? Pretty balanced load.

EDIT: Heading out on an 11 day trip this afternoon. Researching it a little, it looks like a lot of Truck Stops have CAT Scales. Tomorrow as I pass through Lordsburg, NM with some time to spare, I think I'll pull in one of them and have the van weighed. Great idea, thanks.

This may provide some perspective...all in all, you're not too bad.
