Nope, the 6Ē increased width (7.5í to 8.0í) didnít make it tip the scales an additional ~800 lbs like the í07 and í08 brochures might indicate. First off, if you take an Ď07 21SS published UVW (Unloaded Vehicle Weight) of 3,498 lbs and divide it in 6Ē segments of width, youíll find that each Ĺ foot of width equals about 233 lbs. But remember, just the shell of the camper got bigger, the contents inside havenít. The appliances, cabinets and such really didnít change much so the increase in weight is probably even less.
The í07 21SS UVW in the brochure says 3,498 lbs, but thatís without options, like the awning, microwave & AC. An actual weight sticker on a í07 21SS Iíve seen is 4,242 lbs. with options. That suggests 744 lbs. increased weight in options.
I believe the published weights in the brochure for the í08 Roos now include some/common options. Check the actual weight sticker on an í08, 8 foot wide unit and see.
