I can not tell right now, I have not put it on a bridge after finishing... :?
As soon as the trailer is completed I will weight it again. 8)
With gross weight ambulance 3200kg I am reasonably safe. :D

YOU made me worried!

Lucky the ambulance was nearly completely loaded to go :D including full tanks, some tools, spare alternator and a spare yellow top battery :)
Had it on the weight bridge this morning 2920kg
Adding another 175kg for me and the missus ( I am not gona tell who is the heavyweight) :mrgreen:
Another 50 - 60 kg on the tow hook :? :(
That is 45kg spare to fill the fridge and carry some wine home! :)

I am quiet happy :D :D :D :D :D

My problem is that I do have some heavy stuff and might come close to the 3200kg when completely ready for traveling. But let's see, probably I will have to weight everything I put on the car.

So far, the exterior is finished. :) 2 x 93 liter tanks are under the floor.
The interior is 2.00m long, 1.28m broad and has 1.75m standing high.

That's cool, a showering-trailer! :D My showering solution is not soo well in real life.. I rethought it a few times but didn't come to a good solution so far. Not without loosing space in the car, that is really needed. The trailer is perfect!
