After checking the tongue weight
(or hitch weight) on my 13' Trillium
(by means of a bathroom scale), I was surprised to see it weigh in at 260lbs.
The manufacturer certificate inside the trailer cupboard states the tongue weight
to be between 115 - 130lbs. I know it is usually around 10% of the total trailer weight
There is a half full 20lb. propane
tank and a battery
(22lbs) attached to the tongue and the trailer is not loaded with any cargo.
Any thoughts on why the trailer tongue is so heavy ??
