Averaged 11.5 pulling about 13, 000 lbs. Thought that was good.

is that all a 40'er weighs these days? Amazing how much weight they can shave off. Mine measures right about 34' and it weighs 13k easily. loaded to the gills though..

Mine is a 42' and probably around 16k. Tows like a beast. Engine has tons of power, only worry sometimws is the tongue weight and the srw.

It all depends on what it's made out of... real cabinets...type of flooring...ceiling construction...etc. The total weight isn't as much of a concern as the pin weight.

10, 900 dry weight, max gvw 13, 800. I am considering a air ride pin box to smooth out the ride.
