Re: Official Wieght of Truck?
I believe Honda show the Curb Weight of the vehicle to be 4494 lbs (this is from Edmunds for the RTS) and the Gross Weight to be 6050 lbs. Your number probably comes from the Curb Weight which is the weight of the vehicle alone (without fuel) while the Gross Weight is the weight of the vehicle full fueled and loaded as specified by the manufacturer. It should represent approximately the maximum weight of the vehicle when loaded properly. What I am not sure of is if the Curb Weight is the base vehicle or if it is the vehicle with accessories, because I have never read anywhere that you need to account for accessories when you load the vehicle.
