thanks
Don

There probably never was a tag on your trailer with that information. It's only been in the past few years that manufacturers have been publishing an "as equipped" weight for individual trailers... and that is generally based on the average "dry" weight of the shell and chassis, and then adding the average weights of options like air conditioning, stove, fridge, etc. etc. etc.

I'd suggest you find a scale and have it actually weighed.

Dry weights are just kind of a poor guess as a starting point (if the dry weight is above your tow capacity, look for something else).

In the event the actual as-equipped, wet and stocked for the road weight isn't available, the trailer then 110% of the trailer GVWR is an outside estimate to use.

The Gold Standard is actual, loaded, scale weights, the Bronze Standard is the GVWR and the dry weight is merely the Potmetal Standard....
