Ours has the off-gassing odor as well, faintly, if it has been closed up awhile.
We tow ours with a Dodge Ram Hemi, it's overkill, truck does not even know it's back there!
We have had really no problems with the 191, except for a leak around the bathroom roof vent, have re-caulked around the vent and no further problems. Other than that, only other issue was the hinged lid on one of the dinette seats (under cushion on fresh water tank side)....when lifted it scrapes the trim on the ledge that runs across the front of the trailer under the front window.
Enjoy your trip to Arizona, New Mexico, or wherever you end up!

Rod,

what kind of trailer mover? I've been toying with several ideas for a home made unit but real world experience with a working unit is much more valuable. What kind of mods ddid you have to do to get it to a good useable condition?

Jas,

I bought a used home made puller that is powered by a motorcycle battery. One large wheel is in front and it has two smaller rear wheels to form a triangle. It has a ball on an adjustable post and attaches to the hitch. I had the brackets holding the rear wheels widened and strengthened and replaced the two wheels with heavier duty ones. I'd send a photo, but I left my camera in Quebec this morning. When my daughter mails it to me in Kamloops, I'll post a photo if you're interested.

One more modification that I will make is to have it rigged to operate the trailer brakes. The puller locks when it is not pulling or pushing, but it doesn't have enough tire to ground contact to stop the trailer.

Sv191 2004

I just bought a used 2004 SV191 but I can't read the info tag on the outside left side.

Could you tell me the GVWR?

Thanks,

Fresca

should be a factory weight sticker listing inside one of the cabinet doors. mine is under the sink.
gives the factory UVW with options. plus CCC to add for your GVWR.

Here is the floor plan for the 2004 SV 191 from archives.org:

It doesn't list the GVWR, but you if you add the load capacity to the empty weight, that should get you close. If you can't find the sticker in the cabinets like others suggested, then you might find a rating on the axles with a sticker on those. Usually, the axles or tires are the contributing factor on the GVWR.

I've been unable to find out anything about the history of the SV191, including why it is no longer made. Any information?

Camper models come and go. Our Surveyor 263 is no longer produced, either.
