Now, I'm not an Engineer, bur simply deal in "real world" values. That means my search for information begins at the weight certification sticker on the front of the unit it's self. Here is a look.


The next stop in my calculations is at the closet sticker. Here is a look at it.


Based on these givens, I arrive at the following.

Trailer Weights

GVWR= 7,000 lb.

Dry Weight= 4,600 lbs.

Tongue Weights= 420 lbs.

Water and Propane= 320 lbs.

This gave me a rating of 2,500 lbs. of weight that might possibly be added by the owner. If we want a 10% safety margin, we subtract that from the possible weight, leaving us with 1320 pounds of groceries, clothing and bedding.

Now, that's a lot of "stuff" ! And the cool thing is that we still have a comfortable 10% margin !

Larry, did the dry weight measurement include the younger weight plus the weight on the axles? (the pics were too blurry to read well)
