I doubt it. We seriously looked at a 19' Bigfoot before buying the Boler, and I don't recall it being that wide. This is an older design than the relatively wide and boxy bodies that we have become accustomed to seeing from Bigfoot.

Of course, a tape measure can take care of that question...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Right on! There is even a law covering it!!

Parkinson's law corollary:

"Storage requirements will increase to meet storage capacity."

Parkinson's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here is a good guide:

Chuck and I are talking about the same person, she hasn't weighed her trailer yet. Sorry guess we don't know what it weighs.

Sorry for the confusion. I just want to be helpful.

I scrolled down the chart to the pictures to see the trailer in question being weighed with weight distribution bars attached and apparently under tension due to the bar wow.

I took out my magnifying glass and I believe this trailer has a Hensley Arrow installed. With this hitch it would be possible to unload the bars with them attached. It would also account for the extra couple hundred pounds of tongue weight.

Hard to believe someone could load this trailer a thousand pounds more than my wife does!

Good spotting - I had never noticed the Arrow... rare setup.
