Thor Citation 32W

My son is looking at a 2000 Citation 32W but is getting mixed information in reference to the dry weight. NADA says one thing and the current owner says another. Like many weight becomes an issue and the last thing he needs or wants is to have his transmission blow out.

Does anyone have any solid information about these models or a site that can shed some light on the specs. We've looked but cannot see anything at all.

Thanks

The best way to check weight is a scale, due to possible mods made by previous owners.

But if that is not possible, the mfgt's label should be found in a kitchen cabinet or on the exterior if it has not been removed.

Looks something like this:

What kind of truck does he have I think that would be the other half of the question. I assume its a TT? Any 3/4 ton from the last 10 years should pull it without a problem. If the trans is weak already it will probably go towing anything

It seems as though most listing for weight is always different from one site to the next for the exact same trailer. I just did a quick google search on this particular TT and NADA has it listed at 5994. But an RV dealer has it listed at 6530. If you can't get a truly exact weight I would go with the highest weight listed to be safe.
