Question Ventana 3725 question on weight

I'm both new here and to Newmar. Have owned a class C for 12 years. Picking up my VTDP 3725 mid-June. With all the talk about DSDP axle overweight issues, I was curious if the VTDP is close on any axle. I guess we are a small group. If anyone out there has a 3725 and had it weighted, could you please post your numbers? Thanks.

Hi JMH,
Congrats on the VT purchase. Can't answer your question on the weight. However, the 16 DS is an anomaly. Enjoy your coach.

Newmar should be able to give you typical weights from previous units they have produced. Likely not an issue with yours.

Thanks. I know I'll get exact weights when I pick up my coach in June. Just interested in what other 3725 owners have found on weights.

Really? Our '02 DSDP was 50#'s overweight on the front axle when delivered and BEFORE we ever loaded anything aboard or got in ourselves.
To fix it Newmar had Spartan replace the OEM 12,000# front axle with a 14,600# unit in 2004.
