SUBJECT: # 6860: average weight for 16 ft single axle trailer

    Its just a guess but how does 900 pounds sound?

    A very nice lady from Long Trailer's told me that my galvanized 23' dual-axle trailer weighs in at 1,800 pounds, I guess you could use that for comparison.

    500-800 lbs., depending on the type of construction and its load rating. I contacted the manufacturer of the single axle trailer under my 18 ft. boat and they said the original shipping weight was 600 lbs. It's galvanized, open channel steel construction; tubular construction tends to be a little lighter. I'm also guessing that you're asking for the same reason I did; I weighed the whole rig and wanted to know how much of it was boat and motor. The manufacturer or a dealer could probably give a more accurate number.

    Need more information. Is it a 16' trailer or a trailer for a 16' boat? Brakes or not? Tube or channel? Size of wheels and tires?

    If you think your rig weighs only 1300# because of what you read in the NADA website and what you saw in this thread, I'll bet you are at least 500# off. The ONLY way to know how much a boat and trailer weighs is to weigh it. Anything else is just a WAG. Manufacturer weights are dry, without fuel, oil, and any of the junk that we all carry in our boats.
