Curb weight/ cargo capacity question

Let me first say that I am familiar with the GVWR/ GCWR/ Hitch Weight/ etc. Such as that is, I went by my county landfill to get a standing curb weight on my 2015 250 CCLB so I knew that basic info before I started trailer shopping.
With a full fuel load + the dog and myself it weighed in at 8,380. Does that sound about right? I don't know how accurate these scales are.
If that sounds legit, that means I have about 1,600 left for hitch weight, passengers, fuel cans, etc.? I might be coming really close to that!
Anyone weighed their rig on a certified scale?
Edit- I have the plow package and a GVWR of 10,000

I think Ford lists the max cargo capacity of the f250 cc, 6.7l, 4x4 at just under 1600lbs. That's why some go with the 350, for that additional capacity.

Not sure how much weight difference between the 2003 2015 weight wise, but mine went 8060. Nothing in the bed, myself, a fuul tank of gas and my 100 pound yellow lab.

Max payload: 3140# - fuel (6.943*37.5=260.4#) - passengers (you+dog = estimate 200#) => 2680# payload avail.

10,000 - 3140 + 260+200= 7,320#

Sounds like the scale is off by about 1,000#

Go to a CAT scale and verify.

It's a little confusing to me, the max cargo capacity of just under 1600lbs is listed when using a cab over camper. Max payload numbers that are being posted seem to vary. This is what I found for the 2015 F250. I imagine a trim model like a Lariat would have a higher curb weight and lower payload than what is listed bellow, also a long bed higher weight/lower payload.

Crew Cab 4x4 — 156.2 6.7L/Auto GVWR 10,000/9900
Payload capacity 2460/2360
Base curb weight 7462

Most county landfill/recycling centers are not going to be off 1000 lbs due to they are certified and checked. Yes a CCLB is going to be over 8k depending on options that are installed. Both my F350 CCLB trucks have been over 8500+ on CAT scales.

As with most vehicles, the manufacturer listed curb weight is going to be a stripped model. No Navi, sunroof, single battery, bench seats, etc. Probably 5 gallons of gas and no wiper fluid either, lol. Every option you tick adds to the curb and takes from towing/ cargo capacity. That is why I weigh my trucks before I load them. I knew there was no way it would be 7668 curb weight (going on what @84flatbed attached). With what Heavy posted, if comparably equipped to my truck, my local scale is pretty close.
If I'm looking at a 10k trailer it will be close. That is only if I load it to 10k. Likely will be closer to 7k rolling weight.
