Scamp 16 weigh-in

In case anyone wants to know, here is some information about the weight of a Scamp 16:

After picking up our 16' Scamp, we came home and took it to a CAT Scale for a weigh-in. This is the weight of the Scamp as it left the factory. No equipment or gear has been added yet. All water tanks/lines are dry. Both LP gas tanks are full.

Total weight of Scamp 16 was 2160 lbs
Tongue weight was 260 lbs
Weight of 2011 Ford Escape tow vehicle with 2 passengers was 4060

It appears to me that the CAT Scales round off to the nearest 20 lbs. (Or maybe they round up to the next higher 20 lbs)

The Scamp is the Standard version with Layout #4, with the standard package options PLUS the following add on options:

3 Speed Roof Fan
Roof Mount AC
4.6 Cu Ft refrigerator
Gas Furnace
Dual gas tanks
Front Cabinets
Outside step
2" receiver for bike rack
Wheel on jack
Group 27 battery pack
Splash guard on each side (fiberglass back splash over sink and stove)
Vinyl floor

There were a few other options that had no significant effect on the weight.

I weighed the tow vehicle with the Scamp attached, putting both TV axles on the front scale platform and the Scamp axle on the second scale platform. I then detached the Scamp and weighed the TV by itself. These figures were used to calculate the above weights.
The TV with trailer attached (and 2 passengers) weighed 4320
The trailer weighed 1900.
The TV without trailer attached (and 2 passengers) weighed 4060.
