    Please reply with your combined weight when empty as well as your make and model for your tractor and 53' reefer trailer set up. If you know your tractor and trailer weights individually please write that as well. *Scale weight please, no door or stamp weights*

    I'm about to order a new truck that sits at 18,900 lbs 1/4 tank fuel on the spec sheet and would like to know how much I'm ruining my marketability running with this set up. Some are saying I'm not too far off from how much aero truck and trailers weigh, but I'd like to see some numbers. I plan to run a 53' SS Great Dane/ TK unit set up.

    By the spec sheet? Or on a scale? Stamped weights are never correct. Fill with fuel and weight it with you and all your stuff in it.

    For the replies a scale weight. From my spec sheet I've been told it's total weight with 1/4 tank fuel. I have awhile before this truck hits the production line so I'm trying to tweak some things before it's too late.

    Ya I'd be willing to bet you'll be north of 20k fueled and all equipment on it. My 2018 Cascadia is 21k with wet kit, tire chains, my sheet, 280 gallons of fuel, def, etc.

    2019 Volvo VNL760, All tanks full. Empty weight around 34,500 lbs. I change trailers regularly and some of our reefers are heavier than others. I don't have scale ticket with individual weights handy.
    Hope that may help.

    17' Cascadia condo sleeper with Dd15, your basic mega carrier longhaul truck. My truck is right at 19500 lbs with dual 100 gallon tanks at about half full. With an empty 53' reefer weight is around 34500 lbs. These are Utility brand trailers with Carrier reefer units. So 15000 lbs for the trailer.
