Weight rating descrepancies in ratings vs real life
I was looking at the factory rating for our 30WRLS trailer and comparing them to the actual that is on the trailer and they are not even close to each other.
Factory lists UVW as 6479 and GCWR as 8812, payload of 1888 with a dry hitch weight of 812.
Placard on side of trailer above storage compartment lists Dry weight as 7213 GVWR of 8553 and a payload of 1335 and no hitch weight.
The sheet in the bathroom adds a hitch weight range but no actual dry hitch weight.
I am assuming the factory spec is just the basic trailer and the placard on the trailer takes into account things like the awning, tanks, battery etc as that is pretty close to 800 lbs difference and a lighter GVWR as well.
HUmm I need to stop reading stuff.
