Tongue Scale

Looking to pickup a tongue scale. Either a 1000# or 2000# scale would be great.

I use the bathroom scale trick as well. I use a 4' spread on mine, so just multiply the weight on the scale by 4 instead. A $10 bathroom scale at Walmart was way cheaper than a proper tongue scale, and for what i am after it does just fine and is close enough. I figure if 50lbs one way or the other is going to make or break you, then you probably need a bigger truck anyway.
