tongue weight on loaded 21

Has anyone measured their tongue weight on their loaded 21? If so, did you have a pair of 6v batteries in the tail, and were the water tank and propane bottles full?

Thanks,

Allan Edie

Mine was 500/3800 on the tongue/axle coming back from Osoyoos with 3/4 tank fresh and 2 weeks of provisions. Also maybe an additional pound of poutine around my waist.

My current tongue weight is 400. This is a winterized trailer with full propane tanks, 2 6v's, and misc stuff in the front box. With a 1/4 full water tank and usual camping items, weight is ~450.

Loaded for travel, with the fresh water tank and propane full, we have a tongue weight around 440-460 lbs. Total trailer weight is 4600. This seems to be fairly typical of the 2017 and newer 21's.

And yes, this is with the two 6v batteries.

Hi Oldtimer,

Not sure when we will pick it up, but probably in August sometime likely at the earlier end. I want to bring it home to install solar and some other stuff before our main fall trip starting in September.

I can see the difference between my 500/3800 with the classic and the newer models as I had a single group 29 in my Escape and now they are installing dual 6 batteries in the rear which gives you a somewhat lower tongue weight but a little more total weight for the new style.
