Actual Weighs depending on upgrade options and what you put into your Teardrop
Check your Vehicle Owners Manuel to find out how much weight your vehicle can tow and the recommended Tongue Weight
The tongue weighs require some special attention depending on the vehicle you are pulling it with. The math says the optimal tongue weight should be between 10% and 15% of the body weight of the teardrops. Some smaller vehicles really need to stay in that 10% range even after they get a tongue box installed with a deep cycle battery and a load of other cargo in the box.If the trailer is to light it will hobby horse and you would feel the jerking sensation in the car. If it is to heavy it will put to much weight on your vehicle suspension, and the front of the car will feels likes it is lifting up. For this reason, when we design the chassis, we like to know the recommended tongue weight, and towing weight capacity of the primary car that will be pulling it. We make all of our chassis with 3 locations to position the axel. We will discuss the cargo you will be carrying and where to place the axle to get the desired Tongue Weight’
