IMHO, a 17' never left the factory weighing 1875 lbs. Our 1980 is a standard model with no awning, oven, shower, hot water heater, gray water tank. When I bought it there was no battery and 2 half empty propane cylinders. I took it to a CAT scales totally empty and it weighed 2290 lbs. I have no idea where to extra 415 lbs. came from!

Mine says the same, yet it has a: shower, oven, grey water tank, battery. I'm guessing they just put that weight on every single one, after weighing some not quite fully built trailer and getting the 1875lb. Clearly they aren't weighing each trailer.

I will weigh mine at some point, too. I'm definitely curious.
