No, not me! I’ve been getting on that scale pretty frequently in the past several months. But today was the first time on the scale for our rig. A company called Weigh-It had been in touch with the Florida chapter leader, and enough people were interested in getting weighed to make it worth their while to come for the weekend.
Our appointment for weighing was at 1 pm this afternoon, and we packed up this morning so that we would be in “moving mode” for the weigh-in.
We didn’t really have to rush around, so it made for a pretty laid-back morning.
A little before 1 pm, we hooked up so we would be ready to get on those scales. It felt a little weird to be hitching up and yet know we weren’t going anywhere.
The couple doing the weighing arrived right on time, and Harry maneuvered us back and forth, getting us into position on the scales.
They took down the weights and let us know that we would get the results later in the afternoon. We spent the time getting ourselves somewhat unpacked again.
A couple hours later, Bill from Weigh-It came back with our results. We have a good news, bad news situation. Good news is…our wheels and axles are all under their capacity limits. However (bad news), our truck is a little over its weight limit and our overall trailer weight is a little more than a little over. So…we need to do some paring down. Tomorrow we are going to take a look at what we are carrying in our basement and bedroom storage, and see what we can get rid of in there. Our trailer is going on a diet!
