Pentastar engine problems and valve failure persisted into the 2013 model year...I know from direct experience.

Yes Chuck we did have it on the scales a few times. With options (awning, air, laminate flooring, Ikea kitchen cabinets, etc it's dry weight is almost 4,000lbs. Loaded for travel it gets up to 4,500lbs.

I guess the tag is fairly accurate, then, at least for this year/model. (3800 empty/5800gvw). I know I've seen a lot of folks grumping about how their measured weights are very, very different from what is published.
What about the "actual" tongue weight? That seems to be where most are unpleasantly surprised.
