Well I finally took my rig to a CAT scale and weighed everything. The truck and trailer were connected with an equalizer hitch. (I'll weigh the truck and trailer separately some time.) The trailer was mostly dry.

What size is your TT? 2008 Rockwood 2701SS Ultra Light (32 feet, 6 inches)
What's your typical TT GVW? 5660 pounds (Axle weight)
What tow vehicle? 2005 Toyota Tundra, 4.7 liter, 2wd
MPG while towing? 10 mpg at 60 mph.

Now for details:
The trailer, according to the brochure on the website, weighs 4,734 pounds.
The trailer, according to the weight decal, weighs 5148 pounds from the factory.
Note: The trailer is 8 feet wide, not 7 as shown on the website. The trailer had most of the popular options from the factory which also helps to explain the weight discrepancy.

Trailer:
GVWR: 6554 pounds
GAWR: 3000 pounds, or 6000 pounds total
Maximum cargo weight: 1406 pounds
Factory shipped weight: 5148 pounds (GVWR minus cargo weight)

Trailer Tires:
Goodyear Marathon ST205/75R14 (These are replacement tires Carlisle is standard)
Load Range C, 1760 pounds at 50 psi per tire, 7040 pounds for 4 tires.

Truck:
GVWR: 6300 pounds
GAWR (Front): 3500 pounds
GAWR (Rear): 3650 pounds
My wife and I went to a recycling place and the truck weighed 5000 pounds with us inside. The truck has a cap. (Don't put too much faith in that number. I'll get a certified weight in the future.)

The truck is kind of small for the trailer. It works fine in Wisconsin but I'd want something bigger if I were in the mountains.
