I believe the 2018 weight is similar to my 2016. With full fuel, water and gear ours runs about 5700 lbs. I try to make long runs with fairly empty fuel tanks as it makes a noticeable difference dropping a few hundred pounds

Thanks! That means the vehicle I was using isnt large enough for the tow job. Time to buy a truck.

exactly why I decided to weight mine! I figure my summer load is at least 5500lbs with everything on it. Rules out most of SUVs out there.
