Scale weight/Calculated weight

A question for those who have received a new trailer this year.

Did ETI provide you with an actual scale weight or a calculated weight? Or neither?

Thank you

All I received was the standard specification weight.

FWIW, my 21C is spec'd at 3465 dry. I had it on the scale this week 4700 which was 4150 on the wheels and 550 on the hitch. This is with empty tanks. I have a fairly typical option set, e.g. A/C, solar, dual batteries, 3 burner stove, storage box and a few other things. We had it loaded for the trip but not excessively so. I could see with full tanks it would be easy to hit GVWR at 5000. I also found that I had the real axle on my SUV overloaded by ~300 lbs...not a huge amount but it would be better if I could correct it with a WDH, which brings up other issues.

That's 500 lbs. heavier than our "Beverly Hillbillies " sans Granny 21. Tongue weight right at 500 with full fresh tank(bikes on 1UP) and empty gray & black. No AC- probably 125 lbs from recent posts on that. Front box loaded as well as under bed with CA Immobilizer, paddles, cords, Trailer-Aid,. We're packin'!
