The Vin Plate listing axle weight ratings for my model 15 has been lost. Can someone tell me what each axle rating
is?

thank you that is very helpful
it is strange to have a single axle rating that I could park my old 35' class a on :) (17,000)
Do you also know what the empty weight on the bus originionally was. more curiosity than anything on that question.

The empty weight on a seated bus was approximately 28,500lbs. This varied slightly depending on what the specs of the coach were.
