1998 GVWR info needed
Hello everyone, I'm looking forward to learning from each and every one of you, because I'm certain you all know more and have more experience than me!
Here's an odd first forum question: Does anyone know the GVW/R of the 1998 Aerolite 25FDB?
A while back, I decided I wanted to build an ultralight travel trailer of my own and needed an ultralight chassis. I found the perfect one in this Aerolite that unfortunately was beyone repair.
Now, I'm making enough progress that I need to think about registering it here in Massachusetts, and they require knowing the GVW rating of the trailer. I've looked hither and yon and can find it nowhere. There's no info imprinted or affixed to the chassis imprinted itself, and the chassis manufacturer just wrote back with, "Check the literature."
The only literature I could find was an info sheet Dutchman/Aerolite put out that year for its models. There's no GVW. There are, however, Total Dry Weight, Load Capacity, and Dry Hitch ratings: 2840 lbs, 1560 lbs, and 285 lbs, respectively. My guess would be that Total Dry Weight and Load Capacity combined would be what we'd now call GVW/R. Is that so? And if not, does anyone have another source to suggesting that I check?
Apologies for the long note. I feel sheepish posting here because, while I'm *technically* a Dutchman owner, it's in the form of a 1998 Aerolite 25FDB chassis, which some may find an inadequate credential.
Thank you for any help!
