It's only be recent years that the actual weight leaving the factory have been stated on the sticker inside the trailer & I seem to think it's only being done by manufactures who belong to a certain manufactures assosication. Prior the industry standard was to state dry weights which didn't include optional equipment which is/was the industry standard.

At least since 2008, that is when I first saw it and it may be the RVIA requires because that label too was prominently displayed.
