    Can someone please give me an idea of the Unladen Weight of a 33' Winnebago Brave ?

    At the moment I'm guessing it's somewhere around 4,000 kilos but a more accurate figure would be very useful.

    Roger,

    Is that the actual weight of one or the Gross Vehicle Weight? I don't think a vehicle that's a foot shorter is going to be 4 tonnes lighter, is it ?!

    Has anyone on here put one on a weighbridge recently ?

    Just as a matter of interest the "wet weight" i.e. fully fuelled and watered etc is 6,400 kilos which leaves about 1,000 kilos for goods amd personal items etc.

    Hi the newer it is the heavier it will be, my 30' 04 Brave weighs around 7,500kg unladen.

    Without wishing to state the obvious, the weight of any RV is going to depend upon the manufacture of the chassis (Ford F53, Chevy P30, Chevy workhorse etc etc) , whether or not it has slideouts, and if so how many.

    The RV in Roger's first link shows a Brave with a slide, the second is a foot shorter but with no slides hence the radical difference in the weights quoted. Neither state what chassis the vehicles are built on.
