How to Weigh Your Vehicle & Trailer | BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale


This video covers how to use the Weigh feature of the CURT BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale. With this feature, you can get a live readout of the weight of your vehicle, trailer and gross combined weight (GCW) right on your smartphone.

Next, select the Weigh feature on the BetterWeigh™ app homescreen. Make sure your vehicle is on a level surface and that you have plenty of room to drive forward.

Also, every time you repeat this process, BetterWeigh™ will gather data to increase the accuracy of the reading.

To learn the weight of your trailer, follow the vehicle Weigh steps with the vehicle alone. Then, couple your trailer and repeat the process. Subtract the initial vehicle weight from the gross combined weight to get your trailer weight.
