Franswa, do you have A/C or did you have factory A/C ? From the photo, it looks like you may not have A/C. I have factory A/C. I'll bet when they type those certificates they use the same numbers regardless.

To compare with Walt's trailer in post #7, my 2014 Bigfoot 250017.5FB weighed in hitched up at a CAT Scale at 3860 lb ready for camping but with 120 lbs of water aboard. Tongue weight was 500 lbs. for a total stand alone weight of 4360 (I weighed the trailer hitched and unhitched). Deducting for water aboard, I'm about 760 lbs. heavier than Walt's 1500 Bigfoot.

Wow, that is heavy Jack.
Have you weighed it empty? Do you have a generator on the tongue?

No generator, just full propane bottles and an electric jack plus about 30 lbs. in the front passthrough.

I should add that the trailer weighs about 3650 lbs as delivered "dry" with a cargo capacity of 946 lbs. on the Bigfoot label bringing it to 4600 lbs GVWR as listed on the label. The axle is rated at 4400 lbs.

no AC here....

but it looks like it had an AC unit when it came out of the factory (tell tale holes in the ceiling and an abandoned circuit on the panel....(where I am / how I use the trailer AC would only be used "once in a blue moon" anyway...which is why I suspect somebody took it out...probably when it broke down)

on my roof there is only two max air covers...one for the fantastic fan and one over the bathroom hatch/vent

that picture I posted was not of my trailer BTW....mine is a 97 and the listed dry weight is 1116KG / 2455lbs.....not sure if that included the weight of the long gone AC or not....
