Believe it or not I think we are just up to 5000lbs without water. When we purchased the trailer last December we ran it over a scale & came out 700lbs under it's claimed weight. I'll have to ask The_Filly where she put the total weight on the axles & get back to you

(Sigh, this reads sarcastic or pompous, but it's really not meant that way.)

How in the world did you end up 700 pounds under? Was that the trailer axles only? Did you calculate + include the tongue weight?

This is the first I've ever heard a camper being less than claimed.

Ran it over a local scale that truckers use to check their weights. You can't get a print out and trust me I was shocked to see the trailer was actually 700lbs under the weight listed on the sticker. I know we added all that weight back when I added the cabinets & possibly more

Did you happen to weigh your truck separately? I'm thinking you're not including the tongue weight which pushes down on the truck but is still technically part of the trailer's weight. If you were hitched up and only had the trailer on the scale, it doesn't give you the full picture.

Yes the trailer was hooked to the truck and that could explain the discrepancy

Definitely. Your camper likely weighs that weight + 10%-15% of it. I was just all like someone's camper advertised a real weight and then I was all like naw...

The sewer hose holder on our 25RR is too short to fit our sewer hose so we have to make one. I have seen the mods where the 5x5 vinyl post is used but unfortunately that isn't available in Alberta. A 5 hr trip to Montana & I have that piece and a few other things wanted for our toy hauler

Night mine didn't fit either just cut a few inches off and mine fit fine. Unscrewed one end and put it in a ziplock freezer bag
And put it front storage or u could just zip tie it to hose holder .

I have a 19WP that is very similar to your 19RR. How did you remove the panel behind the TV, and what was behind the panel to support the existing TV? I'm like to replace my tiny stock TV with a larger unit, but I'm concerned that the black panel won't support a larger TV. Thanks!

I placed a piece of 2x4 next to the edge and tapped it with a hammer. Didn't want to break the panel in case I needed it for something else. It's stapled in place and once removed there is a huge empty space behind it. As you can see, in this thread, I placed a cpl shelves in ours and a new TV mount to support a larger (27") tv.
