My personal opinion is that the weight
of eggs like Boler
and Scamp didn't change much, just what they said it weighed (and when they said it). To be kind, I will allow that many items that in past were perhaps considered options are now included in the dry weight
as standard... And, indeed the post-fire 13' Scamp is now based on the slightly taller 16', so there's an extra band of fiberglass now in the weight.
As discussed here previously, the axle
capacities of the Scamp trailers have been increasing over time; the 1,200# axles on '80s models were replaced with 1,600# on '90s and 2,200# on current -- That may also be in keeping with Dexter's expansion of the max capacity of their #9 Axle
My 91S13 has a 'paper' weight of less than 1,000#, but when loaded for the road, it has weighed as much as 1,700#, and that's without the heavy options like a/c, bath, refrigerator
, converter, etc., although it does have a battery
, LP tank, brakes
and spare tire.
