Default 2002 Gulfstream Friendship Curbweight

I cannot find the Dry or Curb weight for our 2002 Gulfstream Friendship 8408. Can anyone direct me where I may find this information please?

some body with the same Rv may chime in, but look in the cabinet either above or below the sink, the same label with tank capacities

Default Behind the curtain

I also have a placard behind the windshield curtain. When it is stowed the placard is on the drivers side behind the curtain at about eye level.

The placard behind the drivers curtain only show the gross weight not the dry weight. I really appreciate everyone's help!

Dreams,


The brochure archives at Gulfstream show the 8408 four slide floorplan as being first being available in the 2003 model mix, and as you mention their data only shows the GVWR only and lists it as 31,000 pounds. The NADA guides do show the 8408 as a 2002 model, however...


Sorry my quick look did not reveal any UVWR numbers -- most likely because these are low volume coaches that are often supplies with a unique mix of accessories so the individual coach label is your best authority.

On mine all that information is behind the drivers seat on the wall behind the curtain.

Not sure why you’d be interested in a dry weight since you can’t drive it that way. Dry can vary quite a lot depending on options.
Easiest is to pull across a scale and get a true weight front and rear weight then go from there. I’m right on 20k rear and around 10.5k front.

Most likely it's related to registration fees. Florida goes by empty weight.
