Weight of standard Airstream furniture?

I have a 2003 Safari rear bed. I have removed and sold: Sofa, wall table in front of sofa, and dinette. I do not know what they weighed, but daughter and I removed them so they weren't too heavy.

I am replacing them with Ikea upper kitchen cabinets, only 20" high but still heavier than what I took out I think. Two small drawer units at 30 lbs each; 1 large drawer unit at 76 pounds; a corner unit at 40 pounds and a countertop at 61 pounds = 237 pounds

I had truck and trailer weighed at all four corners prior to removal of furniture.
GAWR of front of Airstream is 3000, same for rear.
They weighed in at 2900 front and 2750 rear when loaded

So, adding 237 pounds and removing stock furniture... does it depend on placement of furniture? Or am I just adding way too much weight? Truck wasn't overloaded either.

If the sofa you removed was a sofa/bed you are installing less weight than you took out.

237 lbs would not make enough of a difference to even matter even if the sofa was just that.

i removed the original barrel chair that came with my Airstream and put in an Ikea recliner and dropped at least 30 lbs.

Another member here used Ikea cabinets and cut part of the backs and sides out to minimize some weight.
