Hi
   Rob Gray bought an Acco fire truck and built a motorhome called  Wotthehellisthat. Documenting the lot on line. Well worth reading.
My point?
He weighed it with a jack, some bathroom scales and a compounding set of levers.


Cheers

Easily done on a single axle van.

2500kg ATM - 200kg ball weight = 2300kg / 2 = 1150kg per wheel.
