16 both inside and out.
Everybody wants a light
trailer. Manufacturers tend to understate weight
to attract customers. The "real world weights" thread here is a lot more reliable data.
I want to tow using my Dodge Journey. They used to rate the Journey at 3,500 lb towing but a while back changed that to 2,500 and no one knows why. With the V6 and a six speed auto it should do fine. Those who have the older one say they see no difference with the new one towing the same trailer.
Anyway, there s so much to like about the Lil Snoozy
, the rear entry is my biggest like, but how to keep the weight down to 2,000 lb. What's funny is they say the Scamp
16 is under 2,000 in its standard CONFIG which seems to have more than the Snoozy. It would add to the cost but here s a list of what would help.
- Aluminum undercarriage instead of steel.
- If they are using any MDF switch to lite weight burch plywood.
- If the shell has a hard inside with the insulation in the middle have a version with the soft inside.
Then the first two would add cost.
The alto safari is really lite at around 1,700 lbs but then it cost over $26K.

I remember hime saying that, it was quite funny but all so true.
