Weight of my 2014 5TA

I scaled my 5TA yesterday. Both attached to my truck and I unhooked and scaled the trailer on it's own. There wasn't anyone at the scale, so this was easy to do. I wanted to know the trailer wet weight.

The trailer was about 1/3 full of fresh water and about the same again for black water. There was plenty of food, beer, and pop. Also all our summer camping paraphernalia. The trailer doesn't have an A/C. My wife and I are the occupants. IOW, just 2 people.

Unhooked trailer weight 1970 kg~~~ 4343 pounds (wet weight)
Pin weight on the truck 310 kg~~~683 pounds

I scaled at a BC Highways scale. So I'm not sure of their finite accuracy- they might round up a wee bit.

This information might help ,me choose my next truck. Right now I'm towing with a Silverado 2500. This truck gets very little use, so I don't know when I'll replace it.
