    Anybody have a guess or know what a 1971 20ft V-drive Campbell would Weight, with Tandem Trailer?
    Maybe 3,000 lbs? 1.5 tons with 50gal of fuel 300lbs=3,300 + trailer?
    That's what it feels like pulling it with my 02 GMC 1/2 ton truck.

    Although entirely different, specs listed for my '76 Eliminator day cruiser 21' jet / 454 at 3800 lbs. Add a thousand for the trailer, and you are pushing 5k... However, I've never had it across the scales. '77 C30 dually has the towing duties.

    Wow, I didn't think my 02, 1/2 ton GMC could pull that much so easy.

    4200-4500 depending on fuel level would be my guess.

    Yeah, The way my 5.3 L eng in 1/2 ton GMC was pulling it, I don't think it is more than 4500-5000 gross weight with full two 25 gallon gas tanks ( 300 lbs). I had a MasterCraft before this boat with a single axle with one 24 gallon fuel tank and my truck pulled it about the same, a little harder with the Campbell. It really does not matter, I just would like to know, come spring I'll take her to the gravel yard Scales.
    Thanks for your inputs
