of your trailer, with options and full propane
tanks. That will likely be a couple of hundred pounds more than the manufacturer's dry weight. Then you add clothes, dishes, pots and pans, food, linens, bath items, a couple of folding chairs, chocks and other set-up items- figure another two or three hundred pounds. That puts a minimally loaded trailer a little under 3000 pounds, which agrees with the data in the Trailer Weights thread. Most people apparently carry more than the bare minimum, as the average loaded weight of a Casita
17D in the database is 3300 pounds with a hitch weight of 420 pounds.
