Well not a camping trip, just a haul around town. I brought it to a friends to put it on his scales. The weight is pretty much unloaded. No mattress or galley stuff. I am happy with the weight being I didn't try to save any with my construction. It pulled like a dream!

don't keep us in suspense. What was the weight? my guess - 1200 lbs. (total tongue plus axle)

ha ha. I didn't wait long enough for all the pictures to load on this page.

I was guessing 1500 due to I did not think about saving weight during design choices.
