Default 199dd heavier than expected

Hi!

I'm a new owner of a 2021 199DD, and I was surprised it was ~300# heavier than what it is advertised (i.e. 3160#), leaving a weak CCC of 444#. I was expecting a CCC of nearly 750#.

Anyone else facing the same issue?

Thanks!

According to specs, your dry weight should be 3,100 lbs. with 750 lbs.available for cargo.
My 2020 199DD fully loaded without water is 3,360 lbs. at the axle.
Load yours up and take it to a certified scale.

2 things... what options did you get? Those will add up fast. Also what does your cargo sticker say? the one on the drivers side by the passthrough?

Hi,

The 199dd comes with mandatory package(s), except aluminum vs fiberglass. To me, mandatory packages are not really options, as the TT cannot be built without them.

The only "non-required options" are:

6 cu. ft. Double Door Refrigerator (instead of the 3 cu. ft)
TV Antenna
Swing-Away Grab Handle
Blue Tooth Radio w/(2) Interior & (2) Exterior
Speakers, Solar Prep, Backup Camera Prep
6 Gal Gas/Elec 110V DSI Water Heater
Spare Tire
Grey Fiberglass Walls

I don't think the 6cu. ft. fridge replacing the 3cu. ft. increases the weight of 300lbs!

The sticker says allowed cargo of is pounds, stating a full fresh wated tank is 300 pounds.

Thanks!

No 100% sure how Travel Trailers work but usually the GVWR is the max trailer minus the actual trailer weight leaving the cargo/payload (in your case 300). They usually advertise the base weight of the lowest weight trailer in that class. Meaning the tire, walls, etc etc... could end up being 300lbs total weight negated once added.

It is the same thing with the trucks as tow vehicles. RAM will say 11,000lb towing and 1800lbs of payload. That is a Crew Cab, 2 wheel drive, work truck. As soon as you add anything the payload drops and usually fast.

It is advertised as 3100# with a CCC of 760# (GVWR or 3860). Every dealer's website I consulted advertise a number close to this (31xx#) but mine is likely around 3416 (GVWR of 3860 - CCC of 444).

I went on a certfied scale and the weight on the axle is 3144#.

Yep, smoke and mirrors. Just like Ford/Chevy and RAM.

Fiberglass sides are far heavier than the aluminum.
