Towing Weight

I was curious about the weight of my truck and camper and decided to do some weighing. I first had my camper and truck weighed on a CAT truck scale, while loaded and came up with 2960 lbs for steering axle, 3320 drive axle and 5740 for the camper axles. I then weighed my tongue weight with a load cell and got 906 lbs. I have a 2001 Silverado with a 5.3 and a tow capacity of 7300 lbs and 2015 Crossroads Sunset Trail 270bh with a dry weight of 5300 lbs. I am using a husky weight distribution unit with a range of 800 - 1200 lbs. I am not having any issues but just wanted to get some input on how this compared to others.

2016 st270

Front axle load 3220 (3320 unhitched)
Rear axle 4160 (3340 unhitched) Limit 4300
Total trailer 6400lbs (5700 when new and empty weighed on way home)
Tongue weight 740 lbs 11.5%
40 lbs of left over payload
Truck tow rating 7200lbs
Equalizer 4point hitch

As of one month ago. I weigh each year. Increased my WD tension by moving L brackets. Put an additional 80 lbs on the trailer and 150 lbs on the front axle. Drove fine before, drives better now in the wind. No wind drives the same.

I’ve got another year with this tow vehicle with the kids growing as they are.....the above weigh was with the family and an extra 50 lbs of salt in the truck for padding.
