RV Tires and Weighing Vehicle Mobile App

To get an accurate weight, your RV or trailer must be fully loaded with the items you’re taking on your trip, including food, clothing, water, fuel, pets, supplies, people, towed vehicles or other items. This will give you the vehicle’s Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW). The GVW must not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) established by the chassis manufacturer as the maximum weight that the chassis and its components can support. If the GVW does exceed the GVWR, you must remove some items from the vehicle and weigh it again. You can find the GVWR for your RV or trailer in the vehicle owner’s manual. Use the RV Tires and Weighing Vehicle mobile app to make sure to learn how to to weigh your RV or trailer to determine proper tire inflation. GoCanvas will not charge to your cell phone bill.
