trying to figure out weight

My brother and i have been trying to figure out how much our bus weighs empty so we can figure out how much it can safely tow and carry... My bus is an e450 with a corbiel 5 window body on it. Has anyone rolled one across the scale?

I recently took a load of concrete rubble on a trailer to the town dump. Since they charge by the hundredweight for that sort of thing I got weighed on the way in and out. You might want to find a similar outfit and ask them for a favor.

My local landfill will weigh you for free, they only charge if you leave the weight in the landfill. I have a metal salvage yard even closer that has a scale they will weigh for free.

Any truck stop with a CAT scale can weigh you and give you a certified weight.
