OK I need some help!!!!! We are hours away from sealing a deal on a ST25RB. Thought all was good and decided to weigh my truck with all my gear in it. Weight out at 6349 lbs. GVWR of my Silverado (with Vortec 5.3L, H.D. trailering equipment, H.D. cooling package) is 7000 lbs. That only leaves me 651 lbs which is 63 lbs under the rated tongue weight of the ST25RB Ok I know your thinking 65 lbs big deal right????well this is without wife food ETC????
Other than the Hitch weight my truck is rated to tow this trailer so my question is: is the tongue weight listed in the Cascade brochure of 714 lbs the Dry hitch weight or the loaded hitch weight of the unit? And does the hitch weight change as you load the trailer?
AM I tring to squeeze to much trailer onto the back of my truck or am I just getting 1st time jitters and try to talk myself out of the deal????????
Any advise greatly appreciated,
