11640 lbs.

12380. Not much but a little. [emoticon]

I don't think the extra 15 gallon of water, 14 gal of gas, an extra 5 gallon bottle of propane and a garbage can full of firewood added the extra 740 lbs.

Makes me wonder where the other 400+ pounds came from. [emoticon]

If it wasn’t the same scale, hard to say if it was accurate or not.

Nope, not the same place.
They were both Cat Scales at Loves truck stops.

Nearest McDonalds is 100 miles away,in my case..LOL.Same scale/same load..All tanks full ready to camp..

Personally I think they re-calibrated the grain scales after a remodel of the grain shack, which is like 100 yards from the house.

When I was married all my ex packed were her clothes. [emoticon]
I packed everything else.

So I'm the only one to blame. [emoticon]

Just the truck and empty camper weigh 9840.

When I weighed my truck only,it weighed almost exactly what my son's Chevy HD 2500 extra cab weighed with similar stuff and fuel..Something like 6400 pounds..So 4260 pounds for a 9.6 Lance non-slide loaded to the gill isn't to bad since the sticker sez 2659# empty which was pretty close when I weighed it empty..LOL

I would check the camper for hidden leaks.
