Considering a 2011 Lance 1181.

Having trouble determining the " real " dry weight of this camper.

Numbers seem to be all over the place.

Anyone know what the true real dry weight of an 1181 is ?

Thank you .

We had one in the past but unfortunately I can't recall its weight. It is a heavy camper and other factors that will come into play will be options that will have been added by the manufacturer. The attached link shows a dry weight of 3650. They are a really nice camper. What are you planning on hauling it with?

Thank you. We just purchased a 2015 F350 dually. So I think we'll be fine. When I posted originally I was hoping we could continue to use our 02 f250 with air bags as we have with our 02 Vanguard which dry is 3000 and likely around 3500 loaded. Somw would think evenvvthat is too heavy for the f250 but we have put 15k miles on with that camper and never a single problem.
But tge 1181 is too heavy plus I wanted a truck with more transmission speeds for better gas milage.

Anyway thank you.
