If you look on the door jamb or storm door there should be a yellow tag...that will tell you the dry weight as it left the factory....

Are you asking pin weight or weight of fiver? Empty weight is a rather useless figure as the only time that comes into play is pulling it home from point of purchase assuming you didn't transfer over items from your trade if you had one.

Empty pin wgt

Thanks for the replies. I know the actual weight from the factory is 11,143. That's on the doorjamb. I was wondering if anyone had this specific unit and has an actual empty pin wgt on the trailer.

Very similar to my 29RE, which is 10,663 dry weight and gross being 13,610. They list my pin weight at 1615, but the island kitchen adds several hundred pounds to the pin weight. The 33IK is about 3' longer, and slightly heavier. Factory specs show the unloaded weight at 10,880 and a pin weight of 2067. After you put all your "stuff" in it, pin weight will probably be around 2500 +/- depending on how you load it. I did move my spare tire from the front cargo to the rear bumper...fwiw.
What are you pulling it with?

yep, the difference between the factory specs and your doorjamb weight is probably due to the optional 6 point levelup system, which is worth its weight in gold. I love mine.

I'm pulling with a 2016 F250 4x4, 6.2L, 3:73 gears. I know I'm going to be close on wgts and at 2500 pin wgt I should be good to go.

That's going to be really close. Have you checked the payload weight? It's also shown on the doorjamb. If your truck is a crewcab, that weight will probably be less than your trailers pin weight, and that's before you put anything else in the bed or passengers in the cab. Although technically there's nothing you can do to increase the payload of the truck, airbags and/or overload springs will help a lot. There is little if any difference in the running gear between the 250 vs 350. However there are other differences such as overload springs and axle/body spacer blocks along with heavier front coil springs. Just do the math so you know where you are, but I suspect you will be overloaded as per specs.
How do you like the 6.2 gas engine? How does it pull that trailer?
