* * *Hi Ryan, I`m curious whether you ever scaled your boler with all in it that you travel with? *I own a 74 13ft. and it scaled at 1464 lbs. And I don`t have air or furnace. *The weight totally floored me. .....Benny
I haven't scaled it but I assume with all my gear and such that I am in around 1500lbs... I have no air.. but for now I have a furnace. It is coming out this summer.

I'll have to look into where I can get the trailer weighed.. I don't think it will fit on my bathroom scale.

:D

Hi Ryan, guess that you can call Ontario Highways Dept. and get the nearest scale location to you. Here in Winnipeg they are at the entrances to the city on the Trans canada and on major gravel truck routes. There should be no charge. And I don`t think that it would fit on my scale either....pretty close though..heh..heh... Also Jan, I thought that it would be closer to the advertised weight of about 950 lbs. or whatever. I also care a lot of stuff in the back of my truck that some people would carry in their trailers although I don`t know where. Another problem is that the GVW for my trailer is 1250 Lbs. on the manufacturers tag in the cupboard. So if you subtract my tongue weight from my total trailer weight I`m still about 50 Lbs over my GVW. , which can be a problem if I get pulled over for a weight check...Benny

weighing in

My 1981 trillium 5500 17 footer weighs in at 2450 lbs with both propane tanks full, battery in, all holding tanks empty.

I had it weighed at the local dump on their scales

I have a 6cy Jeep Wrangler. My engine is the same used in the Cherokee/Grand Cherokee but due the short wheel base of the Wrangler I am limited to 2000 lb and a 300 lb toungue weight. I have been looking over the different fiberglass trailers and thought the scamp was the lightest for it's size. (16'/1750lb?) Any comments or suggestions on the right trailer for me would be greatly appreciated.
You might also consider a teardrop trailer instead of a full travel trailer. If, of course, you don't mind cooking outside, not being able to stand up inside, and having no toilet. :sick Teardrops are lighter than eggs and some models are designed with more ground clearance for rough roads. Off-roaders like 'em because you can get to places a normal travel trailer can't. In my state a teardrop wouldn't even need to be registered because it's considered a small utility trailer. For a few more amenities, there are hard-wall, A-frame pop-ups designed for rough roads.
