Loaded for travel, my tongue weight was 305 pounds last time I checked with bathroom scale, but of course it varies with loading. I need to keep it to 350 lb or less for my tow vehicle and hitch configuration.

The empty tongue weight of mine is about 200 lb as listed on page 8 of the 1979 Boler Manual found on the Boler page in the Trailer Brand Manufacturer section of the FiberglassRV Document Center (link on left edge of page under Resources).

Mine is a 1979 B1700RGH built by Vanguard Trailers; the manual I linked is the actual one from my trailer. The "RG" means Rear Gaucho ("SG" is Side Gaucho), and the "H" models have the water heater and shower.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
