Escape 23 tongue weight

Anyone own an Escape 23? looking to get a more accurate real-time tongue weight. The website has 428, I'm assuming that is dry with the options that it has.

Thanks,
Mike

Fully loaded, at 6,000 lbs, tongue weight could be 600900 lbs (10-15% of gross weight).

Amazon sells a "Basics Digital Postal Scale" that goes to 660 lbs. Mine will weight up to 720 lbs before getting an error. Handy scale to have to measure tongue weight for $64 Canadian. If the scale goes over 660 lbs you know you got at least 11% tongue weight.

I haven't had a 23 yet for the Trailer Weights spreadsheet yet. How about some new owner stopping by a CAT scale? I need model, axle & tongue weight...
