We were at the Oregon Gathering of Fiberglass, but had already parked and plugged in so we missed taking advantage of Fred and his gang's weighing
efforts. (Well, not entirely, we got them to weigh our Odyssey but that's another matter.) Kudos to Fred for this effort.
However, we did take advantage of the Oregon scales and weighed our Casita
Liberty 17' Deluxe several times. The primarily result was:
Tongue: 450# (includes Honda generator
+ 2 gal gasoline)
EDIT: Actually, the above breakdown is not correct as I failed to separately weight
the tongue and the wheels separately. The total was 3,450, but adjusting for the impact of the WDH puts the tongue around 550# and thus the wheels 2,900#. (Approximately, since without the WDH the hitch was still engaged and no doubt impacted the axle
weights a little.)
I also wanted to see what the effect of a weight
distributing hitch was, so I weighed it at another scale with these results:
With WDH Engaged - Without WDH Engaged
Front Car Wheels: 2,600# - 2,350#
Rear Car Wheels: 3,000# - 3,400#
Trailer Wheels: 3,050# - 2,900#
: 8,650# - 8,650#
Oregon scales round off to 25# increments, and I have no idea if its a round up or round down calculation.
(Moved here from the 2008 thread! - Ooops, a copy of that post since I find I can no longer edit that 3-day old post. Sorry for the dup!) EDIT: Thanks Fred for the fix!
