I made a trailer and want to get it weighed. Went to a truck stop, but
my trailer was too light for their scales. Any other suggestions?
his reply to my comment on not knowing the size of the trailer.
My guess is that it is about 1,700 lbs. I want to know for sure how
much it weighs.
now with these two pieces of information I have some honest info to suggest
on....all kidding aside if your local truck stop's scale cant determine a
diff of 1700 lbs in your rig (the truck and the trailer minus the trucks
weight is the weight of the trailer) then there is something seriously wrong
with the accuracy of their scale. I would try to find another scale, whether
its at another truck stop, scrap yard, shipping center, land fill (oh yea no
one's thought of this one have they?) or where ever. if a truck scale cant
tell the diff in nearly 2,000 lbs then I question the scale and/or the
operator of their accuracy.
now also if I may ask. are you wanting to know the weight of the trailer for
your own curiosity or because of loading considerations? what kind of
trailer did you build? (to satisfy my own curiosity at this point)
I hope that is of some actual help.
