Well good old math works alright when a scale isn't available. Checked his Chateau specs -- Fresh water tank capacity (75 gal), 2 Black tanks (40 gal), 2 Gray tank (40 gal), and gas tank (68 gal). Water weighs little over 8 lbs/gal; gasoline little over 6 lbs/gal.

Worse case, assuming all tanks near full capacity: Water & waste = 155 gal; gasoline = 68 gal. TOTAL WEIGHT =(155 x 8) + (68 X 6) = 1648 lbs.

That's a lot of weight for just gas, water, and waste, equivalent to having an additional eight 200 lb people riding in the RV.
