38MB Dry Weight

After reading some of the posts on the RiverStone page regarding people being cautious of weight (not you dblr, nice tow vehicle! Envious.), I'm curious on what my 38MB will weigh dry. It has all options, including generator, washer/dryer, etc.) I'll be towing with an F-350 diesel dually. I've been towing my 21,000lb Voltage toy hauler without issue. Should be about the same, right?

Check out the Esacapees forum under the HDT section if you really want to see some nice tow vehicles. By the way that is where I found mine fir sale even with the Smart car, deals are out there if someone is not in a hurry and you will be shocked at the cost, not as bad as you would think. I think ours dry is just over 17,000lbs but we do not have a genny in ours

I'd love to get something similar but my F-350 is my daily driver, which the wife occasionally uses if her Jeep is unavailable. No way could I get her to go grocery shopping in your rig. She'd kill me!

Don't worry about dry weight, the trailer is never gonna weigh that after it rolled off the factory floor. It's listed with a maximum loaded weight (GVWR) of 19075 lbs so that should be the reference point.

Not sure if this helps, our Legacy 38RE weighed 3520lbs on the pin and 13820lbs on the axles (17,340lbs dry) when we picked it up at the dealership. This included all factory options except generator but 6 batteries, a heavy inverter/charger and 6 solar panels, 80lbs propane, freshwater tank (behind the axles) ~2/3 full.
