Hello, I would like to get an idea of how much my new 08 Adventurer 38t weighs at the rear wheels. I am trying to get an idea of how much additional hitch weight I can carry, Thanks Craig

Put it on a set of scales and you'll know exactly what you have

Hondo12, welcome to the best rv forum around.

You really won't know the weight til you put all your "stuff" in your rig. You've got a lot of storage space and it's easy to pack in many pounds. Also, not sure if you know it, the weight on the rear axle is leveraged up by the distance from the hitch.

If you update your profile with your location, someone on the forum can suggest a weigh station or truck stop in you area where you can get "4 corner" weight after you load up with gas, water, propane, family and "stuff".

To get the weight on each wheel, you need to be able to drive on the scales with one side of all axles just off the scales. Many CAT Scales at truck stops have a guard so you can't get 4 corner weight.

Besides, knowing your actual weight allows you to adjust your tire air pressure to get the best ride and safely carry the load.

Enjoy that new coach & many happy miles...

Every rig will be different because of the "stuff" we carry...Find a scale and have yours weighed. Good Miles

The rear axle of my Suncruiser 38R weighs 15,180#s certified Cat scale weight with full gas, water, propane, Roadmaster Sterling hitch in receiver, plus enough stuff for all winter and 2 people on board.

Thanks to all that replied, and yes this is a great forum, I have gotten so much information in the last month, I,m sure I will have more posts as we get more time to use the new rig.
