Carriage Cameo F36fws weight?

We spotted an ad for a 2009 Cameo F36fws (no genny) about 8 hours drive from home. Does anyone know the approximate gvwr, pin weight, and cargo weight, of this model? I have e-mailed the seller for this data but I also find the opinions on this forum useful.

Thanks in advance.

Caution, the pin weight published is a dry trailer. Find the GVWR and plan to have a loaded pin weight that is about 20% of the trailer GVWR.

I know a guy on the Carriage forum who has scaled his loaded triler at 4100 lbs on the pin. Check out the Carriage Lifestyle forum for more info. Phillip

Yousa!

Seller got back to me and said 15,999 GVWR and 2,800 pin. 20% of 16k is, let me think a minute...a lot more than 2,800 and pretty close to Portal's friend's scaled rig. Kind of kills my idea of towing with a SRW truck??

My Cameo 35SB3 has a GVWR of 16050#. I use a F350 DRW as it is too much for a SRW.

My 05 33CKQ weights - GVW 16,000 -- Advertised dry weight 12,000 -- Delivered 12,100 -- Loaded 13,980 --- Pin Weight 2,700. These are actual weights. Fresh water tank for Cameos located well in front of axles. I carried only enough water for rest stops.

Heavy, heavy unit. One beauty though. I have replaced so many cabinet doors in northeast units, I would check to see if they are still available. Dave
