    Last year when i had my 5 x 10 fully loaded it was 2,300. My new aluminum trailer weight 1,440. Its a 6.5 x 14 double axle. Fully loaded its probably going to be around 3,200.

    I have a 7.5 by 16 tandem. Loaded with 1 ZTR, a 21" and a 36", it weighs around 4,000 pounds.

    He's not off by much. Not all trailers are built the same so give him the benefit of the doubt and say his trailer is 2880. The JD ZTR mower he has is about 1500 pounds wth fuel but he often has a big heavy bagging unit on it. A JD stander is about 1100 pounds with fuel.

    Here's the only tandem I'd feel comfortable pulling behind a Dodge.

    Nope they are right. The trailer is an open trailer, dry weight is 2880lbs...I have the CAT scale weight slip to proove it and the trailer is 83" between the wheels and has an 18' long deck. The ztr is a John Deere, roughly 1400lbs for just the mower, just over 300lbs for the bagger, 160lbs for front ballast, plus a 11.5 gallon tank of gas which is 92lbs...added together that is 1952lbs, I rounded up to 2000lbs.

    Those weights are correct though.

    depends on carrier. my insurance will cover any trailer as long as truck is designed to tow it and handle the load.

    not all trailers are built with the same gauge steel. or same design. there are 16' "lawn" trailers that weigh less than 1k.
