    Over 500# empty. Loaded it would be too heavy for a bike, IMHO. Although I did see a Harley trike pulling one yesterday.

    I never got the allure of a tiny teardrop type trailer. They are cute but all you have room for inside is to crawl in the door and lay down on the bed. No cooking/dining/entertainment table and chairs, no room to stand up and get dressed, just a tiny bed in a heavy package.

    I like our pop-up. It starts out at about 300 lbs., has a king-sized bed and a separate living room/kitchen/dressing room that has a ceiling as high as I can reach. When it rained on our last trip to the beach we sat inside at the table and read, surfed on the computer, operated HF Amateur Radio or could lay on the bed as we wished.

    One of the wife's friends has one of the tear drop campers, they pull it with a 1800 'Wing. It's more then I'd want to pull.

    The RAH starts out pretty close to 400, doesn't it? Don't forget when you're sitting inside watching the rain outside, you don't have to worry about getting your feet wet like the other campers since you've got a real floor under you...

    Yes, the wide bed (king) is 385 lbs empty. We don't get our feet wet unless the rain gets over 3" deep as the RAH has a solid floor that is 3" off the ground. The roof (top) of the closed trailer with the luggage rack on the top opens like a flip phone and becomes the floor and the former luggage rack sits on the ground.

    There are other brands similar that do sit on the ground, the RAH is not one of them, that's why we chose the RAH or would have chosen a Lees-ure Lite if a used one was available.

    What Us the tongue weight loaded? To me tongue weight & stopping the most important ! they are heavy for sure 55! tongue weight but could add a rack in back and get tongue weight even lighter! I like about 35lb-The big advantage I see is ,full in closement from elements & no set up so you could actually use a Wal-Mart,truck stops rest area while traveling!

    I'm not sure what my tongue weight is when loaded, I know it's heavy but I don't think it's that (55#) heavy. I've found that most trailers seem to pull better with a heavy tongue. As far as stopping, it has electric brakes...

    I wouldn't think the extra (less then) hundred pounds would be that big of a deal with a trike. Does a trike seem too heavy compared to a two wheel bike?
