What is tongue weight of 13ft Trillium

Princess Auto has an adjustable trailer dolly on sale - it says it's good to 600 lbs.. My 13ft Trillium is at home and I am not.. I am hoping that at least one of this wonderful forum's members can provide me with an average tongue weight of said Trillium..

Less than 200 pounds, unless you have dual LP tanks and a battery on the tongue, in which case you might be a little over.

I have one of those dollies. Very handy, a little bulky to store. Just be careful if you're on a hard surface with a slope to it. Don't want it to get away from you!

moving the trailer

While in Europe we watched with amazement while people unhooked in a narrow space but wanted their trailer facing the driveway. No I never got that?

But they would unhook hit a button and turn that trailer completely around. I still want to see it again people pulled up with brand new bmws Mercedes and other luxury cars. They did this on gravel by the way!

Their trailer hitches are entirely different from ours they look odd is all I can say.

200lb is a lot to move around I have a neat taylor scale I haven't used it yet the reading slides out so you can see it once you get your tongue on it. I am taking a trip to N.C. soon I think I will stop at a state scale and tie it up for a minute!!

Depending on your situation, you may not need a power dolly.
If you have a hitch jack with a wheel on it (the swing up style?) you may be able to push it aroung by hand.
The only way to know the weights for sure is to get it on a scale.
But +/-10 lb is close enough (oops, that should be +/- 5kg for you Canadians.)

tongue weight

While taking a nap for my back pain I kept thinking and I have devised a scheme to weight my tongue weight!

total weight on the tongue 197lbs right as people have said here I guess no need to second guess anyone.

I moved all my heavy stuff to the back before the experiment.

Hi Chris, I purchased one of those dolly's the last time they were on sale. I did have to change the tires from pneumatic to never flats ($80/pr.) from Canadian Tire. It works okay, but I haven't used it to move the trailer around very much yet. You're welcome to come and try this one out.

I've used that trailer dolly for the past 12 years. Previous house had 90 turn to get the trailer under the car port. Current has a gravel pad be side the hours and under a car port. I used the dolly to get the trailer under the carport at the previous house and at the current. The trailer is a bit harder to move on the gravel but this 75 year old male can manage it.

I added a brake controller to that dolly. Not much control, just on or off.
