How Much Does etrailer Landing Gear Set RVLG-8HDL Actually Weigh


Can you tell me how much the landing gear actually weighs? Im not looking for the shipping weight but the actual weight of the product itself. Im considering installing two pair on an off road trailer to raise and lower a rooftop tent for a lower center of gravity while moving. I just need to know how much weight it would add since I want to keep the rig as light as possible.

We put the etrailer Landing Gear Set # RVLG-8000 ( # RVLG-8HDL sans the crank handle) on a scale for you and found the actual weight to be very close to 77 lbs.

For a slightly lighter option that has the same lift and weight capacities, I recommend the Bulldog Tandem Landing Gear Set # BD500162 which according to the manufacturer, has a product weight of approximately 71 lbs. Note that the hand crank for this set is sold separately as part # BD500203.
