I am shopping boatlifts and a guy over on WW said something I thought was a little fishy or if true startling. I own a 2013 RZR that is listed at about 3100 lbs. He said that the weights were not correct and that the boats are weighed without anything on them. Just the engine and interior. He said not even the tower is included. I thought dry weight was supposed to include everything standard. He claimed the RZR with fuel would be close to 4000lb. Thats a pretty big variance. My boat is very basic as to options so to me with my tank empty I should be close to advertised weight. I even stayed with the single axle trailer to keep the weight down.
If this is the truth I think this is very underhanded and deceitful practice by Tige. It will put me and my family in a very unsafe position. AS our tow vehicle is rated at 4500 lbs. If the boat is truly closer to 3800 lbs and not the listed 3100, on the trailer I am going to exceed my towing capacity.
Doesn't seem like something a company would want to do from a legal stand point. The guy claimed it was to get into restricted size and weight lakes. But if it isn't true whats the point? When I pick up the boat in a few weeks I will be heading to the scales and see what the actual weight is and go from there. We are in the process of buying a new house and I don't really have the cash this year to buy a new tow vehicle. Anyone know the true weights? Why wouldn't I trust the factory weights?
