Weight from the Factory

Search didn't bring up anything definitive.

I'm interested in knowing the exact weight of my trailer as delivered from the factory... before I add one single thing.

Does Escape certify the weight including tongue weight at delivery? Is this an option? Sure I could ask Escape. But, it's early Sunday morning...

Thanks group!

Donna ours came with a label in the wardrobe that states weight, load capacity, etc but I am not sure if it is precisely OUR 17B or the generic 17B weight. I don't think anything is listed about tongue weight. I'll look and take a photo of it later today for you to see what all it lists.

You made me curious so I went on down and got these for you. The silver one is attached to the left front side and the paper one is in the wardrobe.

Escape TT did not provide us with the actual trailer weight and tongue weight of the 19' Escape after the build.

Thanks Eric and Brian for posting the images and Jubal... I think that's the answer I was expecting.

So... has anyone ASKED for their trailer to be weighed and received an actual weight certificate? Maybe Escape doesn't want to tow the trailer to a scale because of their liability insurance...

Maybe these are actual weight? I don't think we'll know one way or another til we hear from Reace or Tammy -- or maybe someone here has already asked them about these that are attached to the trailers? It will be good to know. I guess a check would be if someone else's 17B with slightly different options had that same weight - then we would know it is a generic weight.

According to my labels (if I am thinking correctly this morning) my empty weight should be 1027 kg or 2,264 lbs
1590kg GVWR minus 441kg Carry Capacity and minus the stated weight of fresh water in fresh tank and water heater of 122kg?

Hi: Donna D... Our '07 5.0 has GVWR @ 1950 kg. Cargo Cap. @ 590 kg. Tongue load @ 275 kg. Trouble with a trailer on paper is it won't weigh very much LoL. Alf
