Seems like a VERY high ship weight?

Yes it does for a dry weight of 16,800

2,300 pounds of options

Diesel gen and tank is almost 450 pounds, 3rd AC, vanity slide, 3 slide toppers, slide awning, outside TV (and resulting cabinet inside), washer dryer.

It all adds up I suppose, but I still don’t see 2,300 pounds of options.

I verified the weight - somewhat. I did not weigh the trailer right away. I weighed it when I left the dealer, and with the amount of water I added, I would think the weight is close. Also didn’t do the math yet on th weight difference between two 40 pound propane tanks shipped empty and filled by the dealer.


And I can’t get a full tank of water in. Each fill I have only been able to get about 80 gallons in, and the tank level gauge indicates the same percentage of full.

Our 39tksb3 two axle shipped 18,075# with a 21K rating. It weighs 23K with about 20 gallons of water and propane full. My gen prep was done at factory but 6500 Commercial Cummins was done at RR. I had the W/D installed at the factory but no slide toppers or bedroom vanity slide. We do have 3 AC's and MANY Elite upgrades along with Quarts tops.

Yea I don't put any faith in their "DRY" weights!!!

I was told the dry weight is as it leaves the factory. All dealer added options are not added or allowed for. My dealer installed option included a REAL couch and 2 recliners, Awnings toppers, some other furniture, Mattress and such. Thus I,m up against a weight before the refrigerator is turned on

Well, we traded for our '15RSSA about 15 months ago--on the way home, we weighed it when empty, no water but propane. We had transferred our generator from the old one.
Listed Dry Weight: 16500. GVWR: 19000. Yellow tag on door: Weight of cargo should never exceed 2735lbs...16500 + 2735 = 19235. With the advertised dry weight and possible cargo, it is already over GVWR. AND, the empty trailer weighed 18300--take the gen out and maybe 17900?
What a joke on these figures. Most of them should have the triple axles at 38" plus.

Your rig should have had a 21K rating!!! But then you already know that.

You're right, Ron--but if it could weigh 21k, unless the PW was over 5k, the axles would have more than 8k on each of them--as mine does.
DRV needed to put 9k axles on these or build with triple axles...
I've always had plenty of cushion on the tires with 17.5s on the '05--now, not so much.

I have the 9K axles.
The difference between the 8K & 9K can be seen if you look close at both.

The brake size difference is very easy to see.

I agree the NEW 9 or 9.4 are a nice looking. Wish I had the heaviest!
