Weight removed when gutted?

Hey guys

My 62 globetrotter diner project is coming along good currently reinforcing the frame and trying to order the strongest axle possible for the build

When I got my trailer it was already gutted.... Seeing that I'm going to be putting at least 500 lbs back inside as far as appliances go I'm wondering how much is you guys removed when you gutted your trailer? I'm not familiar too much as far as my old layout would have gone but I'm curious on a total guesstimate.

When gutted I can lift the thing off the from jack with both hands.

We bagged and weighed the fiberglass as it came out of our 27' and came away with nearly #75 or 35kg weight for that alone, if that helps...

I only have fibreglass on my end caps in my 62, is yours the same?

Really curious about appliances, cabinets , seats bed etc must be a decent weight of stuff that comes out of there

Fiberglass insulation, forgot to include that bit even as I was scratching itches at the thought...

The '73 has heat formed plastic end caps.

Copper, including all the brass fittings, was over #100/45kg removed.
