The extra weight being in the frame and running gear makes sense - if there actually is extra weight. From photos I've seen the appliances are pretty much standard lightweight RV stuff. Small DuoTherm furnace, icebox (not refrigerator), and typical RV two-burner stove.

It would be interesting to weigh a comparable Burro 13 to see if there really is a weight difference between that and the U-haul 13 --- probably hard to do in reality though, unless one person owned both, and neither (or both) had a 'fridge.

Curious that a place in Florida did the molds, since I thought they were mostly built in Iowa.

I guess I should have been an archaeologist or a detective - I just get curious about stuff

Maybe we'll have one of each show up at the Oregon Gathering and Frederick can give us the weights. Of course, it would never be 100% accurate due to personal items and the like packed in the cabin. But close enough to get a good idea of the differences.

The Uhaul has a heavy tubular frame were as the scamp does not,I'm not sure of the tongue weight,But I can pretty much move the Scamp around by hand,the Uhaul is much more difficult,and I'm sure it's because of the rental demands on A Uhaul.There pretty much set up the same way inside but you don't see any rivets or bolts thru the shell of a uhaul,the only place it could leak (which it don't) is around the windows or vents,the only thing I've noticed with the Uhaul as opposed to the scamp is that the Uhaul has a tendacy to sweat inside,there's nothing to absorb it like insulate or what ever that stuff is glued to the walls of the Scamp.
