Simply 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 upon completion, enter the required data in the appropriate weight safety report calculator. 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 just as if it were 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 border check points, state roadside commercial truck scales, local landfills, rock quarries, feed stores, moving companies and recycling centers. Depending on the towing configuration, weighing the RV rig may require up to three separate weigh-ins. Once all the required worksheet data is obtained and entered in 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 indicates 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.
