My trailer alone tips the scales at 550 lbs. I wanted 14" wheels and that meant the manufacturer used a larger axle etc. I decided not to skin in aluminum for many reasons but I imagine that I saved myself some weight as well.
I'm trying to keep the total weight under 1500 because that's the max for my 4 cylinder RAV4.
