We looked at a 2502S about 2 months ago. The actual weight of the Trailer was around 4400#. Things like AC, microwave, awning, etc. are considered options and are not taken in to acount with the published brochure wt of the TT. This weight increase will also add to the hitch weight of the trailer. There are a few quirks with the TT, but overall it is not too bad for a lightweight TT. You need to look at one up close and walk through it and spend time in it to determine if it meets your needs.
