Trailer Weights from the Oregon Gathering

Frederick Simson... the weighmaster at the Oregon Gathering has asked me to post this information for him as he is not a member of Escape Forum. He thought the members here might like to see a comparison of Escape weights to other brands of molded lightweight fiberglass trailers:

An Escape owner weighed Last Year (2008)...
08 ESCAPE B 17
TRAILER AXLE 1: Left Wheel=1300, Right Wheel=1200
TRAILER AXLE WEIGHT=2500
TRAILER HITCH WEIGHT=500
TOTAL TRAILER WEIGHT=3000

...and came back and weighed again This Year (2009):
08 ESCAPE B 17
Trailer axle 1: Left Wheel=1220, Right Wheel=1120
TRAILERíS TOTAL AXLE WEIGHT=2340
TRAILER HITCH WEIGHT=320
TOTAL TRAILER WEIGHT=2660

The owner told me that the major difference was that in 2008 the Fresh Water Tank was Full, and in 2009 the Fresh Water Tank was Empty.

THANKS JEFF for letting me to post this

Re: Trailer Weights from the Oregon Gathering

Thanks Donna,
I haven't yet done that with my 17B, but it gives me a ball park idea.

You will note that all hitch weights are "Computed". That is because in addition to weighing the trailer's axles, I weighed the Tow Vehicle twice; Once hitched up, and once unhitched. I then subtracted the latter from the former to compute the hitch weight indirectly.
