17 will weigh quite a bit more than your estimate. Check out weights in the real world. What is your estimate based on? If it is "I saw it on the web" or "someone told me" be very wary. If it is a seller, ask them to get it weighed on a certified scale. Make sure its the full trailer weight
, not just the trailer's axle
. A certified weight
can be purchased at any truck stop for about $10.
Casita will weigh around 3,000 pounds, Edge tow rating is 2,000 pounds. I would not base exceeding your rating by 50% based on what someone might post on the internet.
And FWIW, in the world of molded FG trailers, a Casita 17 is one of the bigger ones. When people are seeking really light
weight, they are more likely in the 13 foot class.
