    I weighed our leesure lite on 2 different scales 20 mins apart. Trailer was loaded with enough close to last 3 or 4 days and our camping gear,empty cooler. I thought it felt lite behind the bike. 480 lbs on both scales. This makes me wonder how much weight I had been pulling in trailers that I had in the past. I'm guessing somewhere around 700 lbs. I think the weight that manufactures claim must be stripped down and no mattress to even get close to what they claim.

    If you have a good bathroom scale, weigh one wheel at a time (or double the weight) and also include the tongue weight for your tare weight.

    Same here in KY, I hauled a load of scrap metal off and when I got out of the truck at the scale house to pick up my ticket, my smart mouthed buddy running the scales told me I needed to try a different diet! I told him thanks for doing the math to tell me I'm fat, I would have never known if it weren't for him! His scales were within about 2 lbs of what I had weighed at the doctor earlier in the week!

    hey Steve, my mother-in-law would say; Ewe's not fat, ewes fluffy!
    Also, I was glad to read that your first set of results were favorable too! Here's hoping the second are (as they expect) the same.
