Just curious...I rented a 24' enclosed car hauler today and loaded it up from front to back, side to side floor to ceiling with my belongings to move north. Truck pulled it and took it like a champ but what do you guys think it weights. Nothing special about contents, only things that stand out as being heavy are two fish tanks (65 gals each) plus stands and 2 small tool boxes half full. The rest is your run of the mill house stuff. Trailer loaded would that be in the 12k mark?

If you get all your stuff from ikea you've prolly got a solid 20lbs of furniture in there haha! J/k, but in all honesty it's so varying that you'd have to throw it on a scale to know brother

My 25 ft gooseneck flatbed weighs over 5k by itself. My old 18' Jeep flatbed weighed just shy of 2k. Point is I bet your trailer alone is 4-5k, truck should be 7-8k. What's your trailer rated for? Don't they have scales in your kneck of the woods?

A lot of truck stops have certified scales. I would just take your truck across one of them on the way and see what it weighs.
