Merry Christmas everyone.

I am a newbie and need some help.  I recently purchased a 1969 Nomad travel trailer and am in search of weight info.  The po said the GVW is 2200 and tongue weight is 200.  Does that sound right?  I am trying to figure out what the cargo weight would be, and I know I can weigh it unloaded but cannot verify the GVW. It is 16 feet without the hitch and is the one with the door near the back end.  TIA for any help you can offer.  I saw that someone had a link to a manual but the link is broken.

This is the only Skyline manual I cold find online . It's in .PDF format but is not specific to any year model per se . Although there is some good contact resource in the file that I noticed on quick looking .

Actually , I did find this one more .PDF . Hope there is something in there for you .

Hi! I know I'm a little late to the party. I also own a 1969 Nomad rear entry ,16', full bath TT. I've just finished a major rebuild and weighed it wet yesterday. Original factory weight DRY was 2800 lbs. Has a 5200lb Dexter axle. I weight out @ 3900lbs wet without stocking. I've installed a full size fridge, 25 gal fresh water tank, new 6gal water heater a forced air furnace, grey water tank, two batteries ,two 20 pd propane tanks and the list goes on. I have a lot of other specs and most of the OEM manuals. You can go on any Cat certified truck scale and get all three axle weights and your over all combined weight. Just make sure you have each axle on a separate pad on the scales. if you need any additional info I might have I'll be glad to get to you.



Thank you SO much for your reply.  I have sold that camper and now have a 74 Fleetwood that I am living in.  It needs a lot of work and it is getting done piecemeal when I have someone to help me and the $$.  Thanks again.
