Just thought you might want to know. I first pulled the front onto the scale, 11,420lbs. Then the whole rig, 25,540lbs., then just the rear, 13,940. Looks pretty good to me. That's with my 200lbs sitting at the wheel, about 3/4 tank of fuel (total fuel capacity is 120 gallons) and no water in the holding tanks.

'03 Freightliner FL112, 295" wheel base, with '03 United Specialties 26' living quarters, single screw, Cat C12 430 h/p 1650 torque, Eaton 10speed , 3.42 rear axle ratio

....11.4k on the front axle is close but with our usage, it will not make a bit of difference, if you watch your tire pressures. IN this market-I know you probably stole it and any wear is offset by the cost of your new coach over the 7 year lifetime [yeah sure]for tax purposes. In 10 years you will need maybe a paint job if you leave it out in the sun for 3 months at a time.....otherwise it will probably look new if you get some fool [or relative] to wax it now and then...hehehehe just kidding, of course. good to have you on the dark side and enjoy your coach as much as possible-whenever you get the chance......geofkaye
