Hello, Not sure if this is the right forum. We had our Class A Newmar Bay Star 3401 weighed this week. We are 400 lbs over on the rear axle and 700 lbs under on the front axles. Unfortunately, most of our useable storage is behind the rear wheels. My question is, would payload behind the rear wheels cause the front to be lighter, with the rear axle acting as a fulcrum? I was told no, because, removing or adding a few hundred pounds behind the axle on a 24,000 lb coach would not have any effect. I remember my college statics course, and I do have a formula for calculating the change on the front axle. We ordered our coach and had the chassis upgraded from a 22,000 to the 24,000 chassis, but actually the 24,000 chassis added 1000 lbs to GAWR (9000 lb) on the front, but only 500 lbs to the rear GAWR (15,500). thank you Don
