Four or Five thousand pounds isn't what I call "light".

Truth in advertising???
With DRY hitch weights up to 600 lbs, you'll need a lot more than a class III hitch and a big machine to haul that. How about a 2500 series PU dually with a quad cab?

the Libby can tug 5k. BUT, even at advertised dry weight, the lightest rig they have is 4100. Don't plan on any passengers... or food. At a 510 tounge weight, the back end of the Libby would be sitting on its wheels.

Weight distribution will allow a heavier hitch weight. The trailer is close to the weight of a comparable sized Bigfoot. Unlike Bigfoot (some models) however, looks like ASV has paid attention to balancing the trailer properly. Still, the trailer is certainly not light weight like most that are discussed on this forum.

In the major RV world, it would pass for "light" as well as "small" compared to the 30' to 40' beasts. What most of us tow around is "cute, micro-small and claustrophobic". For what it is, IMHO, it is a very neat shape and design. Not molded fiberglass, but very nice unit. A little on the long side for me, but if someone was giving one away, or even for an even trade, yep, I'd be seduced. 21' 6"........ ........maybe.....pretty long....maybe not. Too bad they don't make a 17' 6" one. With the same terms of course.

I still like to see what is new out and about.

Kind of pretty for sure and a whole lot of room. Seems to be made well from the description. Might take one after all.

Nice looking "stickie" with an egg-shaped, molded fiberglass front end.

I second the comment about liking to see what's new out there. Thanks for posting this link, Bill!
