Casita lists the dry tongue weight
for a 17 ft DLX at 365 lbs.
My 17 ft Casita with options had a tongue weight of around 380 lbs when I left the factory.
My tongue weight now when loaded for travel is around 430 lbs.
The average tongue weight of a 17 ft Casita from
" Trailer Weights in the Real World " is 427 lbs , if I remember correctly.
Our 1999 16 ft Scamp
STD with front bath had a tongue weight around 260 lbs.
Our weights were taken with all the tanks almost empty.
