I'd like to get some independent street/curb side weights, particularly because of our S/O configuration

I saw a frame that was configured for a 30' Slide once at J/C
and the bracing up front didn't look symmetrical to me.

At any rate, tires all around appear to wear evenly (I don't rotate them), it tows true, and brakes in straight line, so I don't worry too much about it

That's true. Plus the weight of the slide itself. You would assume they would hav offset that with other appointments on the other side, but......?

Cat Scales differ. Similar but not identical. Ground level and raised, etc. One has to work with what is available. Or go on to the next one.

Or upgrade the tow vehicle for this type of scale.
