How much does a Bunkhouse LX Weigh empty and how much can you pull with a 1500?

Empty weight is 350 pounds. You could easily pull that with a 1500. My Aspen Sentry is about the same size, and is 325 lbs empty, although it's rarely empty when I'm pulling it with my 1500. I definitely have to plan ahead when pulling it, anytime you need to brake, you need to be aware that your stopping distance is going to be at least doubled. I've considered putting electric brakes on the trailer to help.

Thanks for the information. Do you know what it weighs when you have it loaded.
Thanks Ben

No, I don't have anything that will measure that much weight! :)
