Any 28A+ owners weigh their rigs?

Just curious if any of you A+ owners have had your trailers weighed? I'm curious to know how what the "real" dry weight is after you took delivery. The book says they come in at 5800lbs, but I'm guessing they're more like 6100lbs after options and propane.

I have a 34' and a dry weight according to sticker is 6500 lbs, it has not been weigh by me. From my understanding the weights can be off as much as 1500 lbs ( more ) then what the sticker says. Manufactures do not weigh all of there campers.

Thanks Scott. I'm well aware of the potential variance between real vs. actual weights. I'm anxious to hear from owners who have weighed their rigs to see what they came in at.

I had an 05 28A version that was 5200lbs empty. back then as I`m sure now there aren`t to many options to add, and what little there are won`t amount to much. my cabinet sticker was 53lbs more than the advertised brochure weight. I had a rear storage door and spare as the only options. the Cherokee Lite lines are pretty well off as far as features go and there aren`t too many options to add.
