Have you ever heard of a 1957 Holly? I had one about 10 years ago, I think it was 19', and it was in really good shape. Birch cabinets and paneling. Anyway a friend and I got to talking about it the other night. And he mentioned how heavy it was. I wasn't sure of the weight so here it is: Does anyone have any idea what the weight for this travel trailer is? Any info is really appreciated. Thanks.

I'd estimate between 3000-5000lbs.

My trailer is an 1964 Anderett, it titled out at 1970 lbs. BUT, it has no bathroom or any holding tanks. I did see a nice Holly at the Tin Can Tourist Show in Milford MI. It did have a bath and I believe it was longer too so I'd say it would be a bit heavier, somewhere around 2800 to 3200 I'd guess. Here's a few pic's. Note the roadside door also. Sorry I don't recall the year.

Thanks for the replies guys.

michcruiser60-

That's the same trailer I had but ours was white. Probably painted by the original owners. I think it was 19'. What would you think?

Thanks to both for posting.

Yep, I'm thinkin' this is a 19 footer. Mine is 16' long. I know if you don't get these single axle trailers loaded right they can be a handful and pulling them with an old car would have made them "squat" a bunch. I know some trailers had weight distribution hitches but not all. I think without them it would have made them seem to weigh or act more then they really were.

Yeah, I used to pull mine with my '89 Dakota standard cab short box. We were moving to Traverse City taking the right turn in Petoskey it was raining light and the Holly almost pushed me through the corner. Very close to jackknifing it. Ahh memories.

I had pulled a 60's Yellowstone with my '89 1/2 ton shortbox once. I loaded ALL my gear in the back of the trailer....I learned to load differently since. That was a fun month in that ole trailer.

That Holly was actually our first house. We lived at the Traverse City State Park for almost a month before we bought a place over there. The interior was in excellent shape and the exterior wasn't bad either and it actually seemed roomy. But after a couple of weeks in the summer heat with no A/C and all the extra stuff you wouldn't normally take camping. That baby gets awfully small. lol.
