We Weigh How Much?

by Kevin Watson

Have you ever wondered how much your truck and RV weigh and whether or not you are within the legal limits of your RV and truck's capacities? In this video, we show you how to find out how much your truck and RV weigh, and go over the steps of how to set your truck and RV up on the scale to get the proper combined weight of the rig. We go a step further, and weigh the truck by itself, to see what our true weights are!

While these numbers can be confusing, our step-by-step breakdown of how we got our weights and what the numbers really mean, make understanding the data easy, even for a novice! We break down the scale slips of the truck and RV combined and then the truck by itself. We go over each of the scale slip numbers, what they mean and how to determine the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of the truck, the pin weight of the trailer and the GVW of the RV!  We show you how to use the numbers to understand where your weights are in relation to the legal limits of both!

We also share a pro-tip regarding how to save money and stress at truck stops by using the TSD Fuel Card to fuel up the truck when the RV is hooked up!  This video is intended to help you in figuring out if your RV is loaded properly, and what you can do to maximize your payload capacity, while still remaining in the legal limits of the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the truck and the RV!
