I would say about 800 pounds for my rig. Wet weight is 2,200 pounds and at the scale it weighs 3,000. Of that 800 pounds, I’d say probably about 150 pounds is stuff we don’t use regularly or never use. Our rig is our Bug Out Vehicle so we keep it stored with emergency essentials, just in case.

I think I’m in the minority and only bring what I actually use on any given trip. I have a fifth wheel trailer loaded to the max for when my whole family is coming along but the camper is mine. It is the opposite. It is kept nearly empty with minimal supplies. I either use it on my own or when my teenage son comes along so its the basic supplies that get me/us through. That’s the whole point of the camper for me.
So, weight of things I haul that I don’t use? Maybe 30 or 40 pounds.

With my minimalist rig, I haven’t had to use the winch or other recovery gear yet, but that’s a couple hundred pounds I’ll keep.
The propane heater I included in the build is too hot even near 0 degrees F, so I sort of regret the space it takes up but it might come in handy later. If nothing else, I’ll plumb the propane outside for a grill.
So it comes down to the scissoring stairs I bought so my short dog could get in, and she’s since learned how to scramble up without them. So…about 20 pounds.

Probably 200 lbs or more in my TT. I’ll have to work on that and really pare it down in the new TC…

Oh, how that ‘stuff’ accrues. At one time, we would completely empty the camper of all contents, once a year and put back only things we actually used. It amazed me every time how we could whittle down the things we take. The things not put back in the camper could be hundreds of pounds. A heavy exemption is my weird holdover from the rock crawling days to have too much recovery equipment, only some of which I’ve actually used with the TC. The ‘stuff’ we take is also tied to each individual trip. If it is going to be windy, I don’t take my nylon tarp, poles, stakes and bungee cord that serves us well as a lightweight side awning.
