Here's an old, but worthwhile discussion.

I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

Trailer: 13 ft Scamp Deluxe No More .. Sob!
Posts: 185
Near Midway BC I came across a free vehicle scale that allowed me to determine that my 2005 13 Deluxe Scamp weighed in at 1880 pounds including a tongue weight estimate of 164 pounds. Included is 12 gallons of water and about 200 pounds of food, clothing, and tools. That makes a dry weight of 1580 pounds, somewhat more than the Scamp literature indicates.

Trailer: Love Bug / Chevy Astro
Posts: 225

1973 Love Bug 13'. Does not have any holding tanks. Does have furnace. Weighed with full LP tank. Original doors were removed during rehab, I replaced them with doors that
I made out of box car siding. New axle installed. Spare tire hanging on back.
The trailer was weighed on a certified scale. Total weight was 960 pounds with the tongue weight at 100 pounds.
I usually pull with a Chevy Astro with a rated tow capacity of over 5000 lbs and I can't tell the Bug is back there.

Trailer: 81 Trillium 5500 (Pearl)
Posts: 145

1980 Trillium 5500 (18 feet).
It's got a rooftop Coleman A/C and a REAL mattress (heavy!) Porta-potti, no water in the tank, lot's of "stuff" for a couple of weeks on the road including screen room, chairs, inflatable kayaks, etc., 2 24# propane tanks and a deep cycle marine battery.

Oh, and 10 pounds of Vidalia onions was tossed in just before we used the scales in Georgia.

Total: 2780 lbs.

They sure built those puppies right.
