Looks great what are you going to tow it with? You can ask ETI about how much it will weigh with all the options installed and they will put it in a program that they run and will tell you. My 21 will weigh 3854 lbs. or so they told me. The following is the E-mail I received back form ETI.
With all of your options, I used our cargo weight calculator and I came up with a weight of 3855lbs, GVWR of 4600 or more is recommended. This weight does not include anything you add to your trailer, i.e. clothes, groceries, etc.
