For comparison, the ETI website spec for the base, dry classic 5.0 is 2620 lbs: 2140 lbs on the axle, and 480 lbs on the hitch. That's roughly 41% heavier; it is wider, taller, and tandem-axle.... and all those options (and 50 pounds of water) would make up a significant part of the increase. Also, the increase is proportionately more on the axles than the hitch (perhaps only due to the location of the options), so the pin weight fraction drops from 18% to 16%; this is easier on the truck capacity than the overall weight increase would otherwise indicate.

This unit has almost every available option on it, except the spray foam. It will be applied soon. This weight includes dual 6V batteries and a full h/w tank, no propane.

Reace
That sounds manageable… good job!!

I notice a radio antenna above the awning? Is this an option or something new?
