Now the Bigfoot
is back in the barn, I took some trailer tongue weights measured at the jack foot using a Sherline scale.
The trailer came from Bigfoot with a weight
of 5,310 Lbs. The dealer added 60 Lbs. of LP for a total of 5,370 Lbs. The tongue weight
was 850 Lbs.
I added 30 Gal. of water to the tank and 6 Gal. to the hot water heater, new total weigh at 5,670 Lbs. new tongue at 1,000 Lbs.
I removed the water for storage and added camping gear, new tongue weight
of 925 Lbs.
I removed the fiberglass box, added custom rack, new tongue at 750 Lbs.
I knew the FG box was heavy, but I did not expect this much of a drop.
When I add the cooler and two group 31 batteries and add water I should be close to 1,150 LBS???
