Its nothing more than a 'dorm' fridge. AC only.

Thanks. That's what it looked like. I value the outside-accessible storage more than the refrigerator. My son leaves for college in August. If I buy a 21DK, I foresee that refrigerator going with him to his dorm, and I get a big empty storage box situated squarely over the axle.

Unfortunately, 21DKs seem hard to come by in the South.

I just saw a picture of a weight label sent to me by a dealer. The GVWR is 4965 while the GAWR is 2200 per axle. That means that at max weight the manufacturer assumes at least 565# are on the hitch. I guess that's why they list that as the hitch weight, on their web site.

The dry weight as built is 3957 with a cargo capacity of 970. Subtract 250 for a full load of water and I have 720 left. Do other 21DK owners find that adequate without exceeding the trailer GVWR?

Chris ,, that weight is just for when you are towing it, as far as what is inside it. But after you put down the stablizer jacks, it can handle more.
I personally can't imagine putting 700 lbs of stuff in the 21dk.
I am kinda figuring in my head but this is what I figure:
Bedding: 10 lbs
Towels: 10 lbs
Bathroom accessories, shampoo etc. 10 lbs
Kitchen plates/cookware/silverware etc.. 30 lbs
Food in the pantry (Booze included):-0 50 lbs
Refrigerator , packed with bottled water 50 lbs
Clothing 20 lbs
Outside storage : sewer hose , water hose , levelers, 30 lbs

So around 200 lbs. That is without any water in the tanks. We just carry a small amount in the tank when traveling. Most every place you camp will have water unless you are boondocking.
