Thanks in advance.
Ours is an '87 and the only figure I've seen (can't put my finger on it at this point) was 4600 lbs. (probably dry weight) That'd vary depending on the engine/drive options, of which there were a few. Ours is a VP AQ271A w/290 Duoprop (which apparently is an odd duck). The fuel tank
is 55 US gallons so you can figure that weight and ours only has a 5 gal water
bladder. I think we end up heavier due to added deep cycle batteries
. I'd say probably 5200 lbs fully loaded. For an added safety
margin look for a tandem with 7500lb capacity or more if you plan on hauling it longer distances.
Hope that helps.
