Smile trailer specs and towing

Does anyone know how to help me find the exact weight of my 55' bubble including the tongue weight? The title says 2300 lbs but I am not sure if that is accurate, and there is no mention of the tongue weight.

I want to haul it with my 97' Jeep Cherokee but I need to know if it can handle the weight.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would not go by any printed material. I would take it to the nearest CAT scales and weigh it up. Before I weighed it, I would load it with all of the stuff that I would normally carry. I would fill all the tanks to make it the heaviest it could be. The weight that you get would be an actual maximum. That is the weight that I would use to rate it to your tour vehicle. As for the tongue weght, weigh the tongue only with the trailer wheel off the scale. When you do this, make sure that the LP tanks are full. This will give you the real picture of what you are dealing with.

At the Vintage Airstream Photo Site they have a picture of a sales flyer for the 55 Bubble, what a great little trailer!

It lists the overall weight as 1750 pounds and the hitch weight as 180 pounds.
