2011 23 fb

Does anyone know the actual toung weight of the 23 fb flying cloud. The Airstream site says about 490 lbs. Has anyone actually weighed it and know this accurate? Thank you

The Airstream weight is empty except for propane gas. The meaningful weight would be loaded for camping, as you might load it. The 23FB has most of the storage forward, so is likely to increase tongue weight significantly.

Not sure if you are matching this to a tow vehicle or perhaps picking a weight distribution hitch, but the only way to be sure is to weigh the tongue when loaded for your needs. There is a simple technique using a bathroom scale.

I asked the same question several months back. One owner had weighed the trailer tongue and it was ~750#. I am not sure whether this included the weight distribution hitch assembly or not -- the advanced WDH's like Hensley or ProPride are pretty heavy ~200# alone.
