Brian, Yes most egg's (actually this probably holds true for most rv's) are advertised at a certain weight. But I believe that the advertised weight is what the trailer weights before things like fridge
, ac, heater, stove, propane
tanks, carpet, tile, awnings, etc are added. It's a kinda a mis-guided numbers in my opinion. I don't understand why they can't get reasonably close to actuall weight, and somewhere in the itty bitty print they probably state why but more times than not, everyone goes by what is advertised. Our 2007 Casita
weighted in at 2800 pounds empty. Much more than the weight I was under the impression it was gonna weight. Still for us and our truck that's a piece of cake. Hardly know it's there. But as our world changes and we get more intune with smaller is better, it's just a fact that the world of little fiberglass trailers still might be toooooooo weighty for some vehicles to tow. That being said, it may take you a lot of searching but you more than likely can find one with in that 900 pound range. And hopefully others will be able to pipe in with some suggestions of what brands to look for. But in my opinion you still need to take it down and weight it and see for your self what the actual weight is.. Cause as you can see you can't go off what is stated.
I think for you, looking for an older egg would help you keep weight down as I know our older casita
weighted a lot less than our newer one. I don't know why, but I guess things like fridges, a/c's, carpet, propane tanks weight more in 2009 than what they weighted in the 60's and 70's..............
