    Had a Western Trailer 48 with 2 60 inch boxes, chain and dunnage racks, coil package and a few other add ons.
    Factory weight tag said 8800 as equipped.
    Currently have a Fontaine 53 combo step. Has one box and dunnage trays, fixed spread. The factory weight tag says 10300.

    Extreme 53’ with slider BOL said 9212 lbs. didn’t really believe it but after weight it it’s lighter than my 48’ Rietnhour was. 29B4023B-96E3-400A-BEBA-0DAADAB2E55E.jpeg

    Everything is good so far. Loving it. Very close to 9000 lbs for an empty weight. That part I’m really loving.
