On the other hand, our 1985 Scamp 16 weighs 1800 lbs empty and 2000 loaded for the road. That probably sounds low, but it's the rounded reading we get from the local truck scale, the sum of axle
and tongue weights. Our trailer has few amenities to add weight
. It has a cooktop, a porta-potty and one wood-faced cabinet. No fridge
, but the loaded weight
includes a 60 qt cooler. The cast iron pots stay at home. We carry the lightest camp chairs and associated gear we can find. It's less luxurious than it might be, but it's allowed us to enjoy a smaller, more economical tow vehicle- a Subaru Forester.
