Empty trailer weight

Has anyone gutted their airstream and then weighed it? I am planning on gutting my 1971 31 foot Land Yacht and am trying to get an idea of how much it will weigh empty. I plan on bringing it to a weigh station once gutted but would like a general idea of how much all of the original interior will take off of it. The inside panel of the door says the trailer weighs 7,600 some odd pounds as is right now. Any input is appreciated. Thank you

Vintage Trailer weighs sheet

They say a '71 31' weighs 4910lb dry...

If you mean 'really' gut it you'll have 100lbs of copper pipe, another 100 in plumbing fittings, 100lbs of wiring, 100lbs of fiberglass insulation, 100lbs of carpet and tack strips, 100lb for the Dometic fridge, 175lbs of interior liner & belly pan sheet aluminum... subtract another 70 for battery, 35 for the Univolt converter, anyhow... you get the idea.

Interested what the scales folks tell you.
