Getting Weighed

Getting Weighed

 I had always heard that if you want to be safe and not overload your Motorhome, you should get it weighed.  That way you know if you are carrying the right load for your tires. 

I was at the Great Lakes Area Spring Spree (Glass) Rally and they were weighing the Motorhomes for the discounted price of $35.00.  The normal price is $49.00.

The first step is to fill out the questioner with the motorhome type and the manufacturer of the tires that you have on your Motorhome.  The Freedom Bird had a cheap set of 8R-19.5's similar to the ones I put on Shaggy.
