Older cabover weight
« on: October 11, 2009, 09:01:07 PM »
I recently bought a 1970 Open Road cabover for hunting and was thinking of mounting it on a single axle trailer but was wondering how much does an old 8' cabover with no bathroon weigh?

Welcome to RV Forum.

You should weigh it at a public scale.  Remove it from the truck and weigh the truck alone.  Then you will really know.

I have seen them mounted on a trailer made from an old pickup cut off behind the cab. The downside is weight, it would require a truck to pull it so what's the point. IMHO, a proper travel trailer wold be a better alternative with lots more floor space.
