I good rule of thumb is to add 600lbs to 800lbs to that dry weight to come up with a some what more realistic weight. Which would put it in the 2800/3000lb loaded category which is actually still on the light
side compared to 17' fibreglass trailers. The fact they have put such a large capacity axle on it to give an 1800lbs carrying weight suggests it most probable is going to weigh over 3000lbs once loaded.
As you can see from the thread Trailer Weights in the Real World
17' fibreglass trailers loaded for camping weigh in from 2585lbs all the way up to 4400lbs... with the average being in the 3300/3400lb range.
As always the best thing you can do is load it up with all your stuff and weigh it including the tongue.
