I'm thinking the images posted are "generic" for the model of trailer because of the language of "range" and "rating."

You might indeed be right -- only thing that makes me wonder is that the AC is optional and that thing has to be pretty heavy and might make a decent amount of difference. Most other changes would be relatively minimal - maybe the refrig size would be next biggest difference?

(Hard to think of other things when you are dreaming of picking up that new beauty isn't it?)

I suspect you are correct, and that the weights given are just as useful as the actual weights would be, since the moment you add pots and pans, the weight given would change and likely never be the same again.

Getting actual weights would require a scale on site or two hours drive time up to the CAT scale in Hope, and back and fees.

Glenn - since you don't have AC - do you know what your 17B lists as carrying capacity? That might give us some comparison to ours.

Well - we have the same except for we have AC and your Carry Capacity is higher than ours. So it isn't just a totally generic rating. But the AC must weigh more than 19kg?

There might be different weights for different years. If so you would have to compare 2 trailers of the same size from the same year with different features to tell if they are trailer specific....or ask Reace/Tammy....

I live 3 miles from a TA truck stop and they have certified scales. The information would be for my own amusement. When I pickup my trailer, I'll just have the bare necessities to camp one night close to the border, then I'll book for home. It wouldn't be that difficult to get it weighed at the TA. I could even unload whatever items I took to Chilliwack (coffee maker!) at home first.

Then, I'll be camping less than three weeks at the Oregon Gathering. I'll be loaded not only for nine nights, but hauling a bunch of stuff for the Gathering. I'd like to get it weighed for a comparison.

Trailer weights are a major topic on the forums. I want to know specifically what mine weighs naked.

Wardrobe specification sheet

The wardrobe spec sheet gives us more information.
I looked at the wardrobe spec sheet inside of our 2013 Escape 19.
The GVWR is 1818 Kg or 4008 Lbs.
The Cargo carrying capacity is 336 Kg. or 740 Lbs.

IF the spec sheet is correct, the weight of this trailer is 3268 Lbs. If the aprox total dry weight on the Escape TT website (2510 Lbs.)is correct the weight of the options is 758 Lbs.
I think I am getting a headache.
