It is important to note that the advertised weight will be specified as ‘in standard configuration’ and dry. You would rightly expect that if you buy a trailer in standard trim the advertised weight would be the weight reflected on the VIN Tag. All added accessories, whether they are a bonus accessory, or a purchased accessory will increase the Tare Weight. Equally as important, they will decrease the load carrying capacity, which is the difference between the Tare Mass and the ATM (Aggregate Trailer Mass).
