Twin beds: 5800 3610 2190

option weight:

A/C 113
Aux step 12
Auxwaste 70
Stablizers 60
Batt Charge 90
Entertainment 17
Safety 10
Spare tire 70
TV ANt 5

LPG tank (full) 30
Water(full) 248

Tounge wieght should be 10-15% of total weight

The published tongue weight is for an empty trailer.

The actual tongue weight is totally controlled by how you load the trailer.

You can make it lighter or heavier.

You should also travel with "full" water.

That lowers the center of gravity and provides a nice place to get water, in an emergency, or should you blow a radiator hose.
