Wanted to get your opinion on the importance of measuring tongue weight.
Is it common practice to actually measure the tongue weight with a scale for each load you haul, or do you just eyeball-it?
For perspective, the scenario is a 2013 Tacoma v6 w/tow package using an 18' 7000# tandem axel car hauler trailer used for towing a relatively small tractor (JD 3520, approx. 3100#) and various implements up to 800# each.
I'm trying to decide if I should invest in a tongue weight scale since I don't have a public scale easily available to me.
