To tell the truth, neither have I. I've mostly hefted it and guessed and went by the "feel" when driving. My guess is most times it's a little over 100 with a gas bottle. But maybe I'm stronger than I think! I will check: Stand on scales... heave to level of hitch... "Errrrg! Quick honey, what's it say? Honey???" Oh yes, subtract my own weight!

I am more concerned that none of us old model Trillium owners seems to know what our gvwr restriction actually is. Sounds like most folks tow more than 1500 but how much more is safe or legal? I doubt that anyone is going to get pulled over for a couple of hundred. But it would be nice to somehow know.

Someone commented that my loaded weight seemed light. But that didn't include any food or drinks. And our camping is a pretty simple affair.

Well the 2011 Trillium's were basically the same as the old ones like ours. I would assume the axle is the same as well as the frame. The 1300 well equipped weighs ~1400lbs and have max gvwr of 2000lbs. So I think it would be safe to say less than 2000lbs your ok.

Well, thanks. That provides some comfort if not documentation. According to Tom from Trillium parts, the first ones they built way back weighed in at around 1000 pounds, dry weight. He estimated mine, a '76 would have been around 1200 which from my weigh in doesn't seem far off. He says they gradually got heavier over the years as people wanted more and more creature comforts. I actually saw a "teardrop" the other day that the sales person proudly announced, "weighs only 1700 lbs!"
