Lisa, have you had the escape weighed since you had all the options put on? If anything was added after market, that weight would not be on the sticker. Our present tow vehicle is a 2010 Nissan Xterra, so that is the reason for our questions/concerns. We are interested in the Escape, just want to know the weight for safety concerns with our tow vehicle.
Thank you so much for your replies.

Mike,

I haven't added anything after market. All the options were installed at the factory. I haven't weighed it either.

Here's a very useful link to Trailer Weights:

Lisa, do you have the "Certificate of Origin for a Trailer" from ETI? It lists the actual shipping weight with all the options you ordered included. My 17B shipped at 2,725 lbs with all options. The listed "Dry Weight" is a measly 1,650 lbs.

Pat,

Thanks for the tip! I'll check my documents.

I have checked my Certificate of Origin.

The shipping weight listed is 1145kg = about 2524 lbs.

Just for reference, the GVWR is 1818kg = 4008 lbs.

Furnace?

I didn't see a furnace listed in the features. Does it have one? If not, can one be installed?

A furnace is standard in all Escapes, so this will definitely have one.

The normal loaded weight of a 19' is 3700-3800 lbs. but some are up at the 4000 max allowed.

I do believe there is something awry with the listed shipping weight of of my 19. I have sent ETI an email asking for clarification (or basically - what am I not understanding?)

I weighed Ten Forward at a free Oregon scale when I left Champoeg last month. No freshwater, marginal gray water and black water (and how much stuff does a single traveler haul?)

Connected, on the axles only, Ten Forward weighed 3,250. YMMV

I would have guessed that my 19 easily weighed 2800-3000 lbs.

I believe you are close, Lisa. My Escape 19 was around 3400# wet, packed for camping and the sticker was 2900# dry with options. For Comparison, BlackJack on the scales came in at 3800# wet, so this means the extra axle and 18" size is the difference.

The furnace in the Escape is the Atwood #8012, which pulls less than 2 amps while operating, very efficient and great for boondockers on solar.
