Select the appropriate worksheet (PDF) below to open and print or save it to your computer or mobile device for later use. Follow the step-by-step instructions and enter the required data in the appropriate weight safety report calculator upon completion. This data consists of the vehicles' certification label information and scale weights of one's particular tow vehicle and trailer. The tow vehicle and trailer should be fully loaded with the cargo and appropriate tanks filled and all expected passengers aboard as if ready to tow to the trip destination. This worksheet requires you to weigh the tow vehicle and trailer at the nearest weigh station. CAT Scale facilities are readily available and convenient to use.
Additionally, check your yellow pages for public scales. You may also find scales at local landfills, rock quarries, feed stores, moving companies, and recycling centers. Although scales may be found at border checkpoints and state-controlled roadside truck scales, the public consensus is that these scales are for commercial vehicle use only. Depending on the towing configuration, weighing the RV rig may require up to three separate weigh-ins. Once all the worksheet data is obtained and entered into the calculator, the results can be seen in an understandable format. All safety margin results displayed in green indicate towing is safe. Any result displayed in red suggests there is an unsafe overload.
Please note: Fifth Wheel Street. calculators are not designed for entering individual weight of each tire position. This type of detailed weighing is not available at most truck scales. Whenever possible, weigh each wheel position at a location that provides the advanced towing safety report. Visit the Wheel-by-Wheel Weighing Resources page to find a location near you. If you have access to a scale facility that will allow individual tire weighing, you may print and use the worksheet provided by Bridgestone Tires. Please note, it is unlikely, if not impossible, to accurately weigh each wheel position at any truck scale.
