I compared our camper of a comparable size to some commercial units on the market and it is around the same weights. Quantum was around 100kg lighter, but others are around this weight.
I put it over the weigh bridge when I got it registered. I still had to have the kitchen fitted, and the bed fitted. I thought by my calculations it should weight 1640kg but it came in under this, at 1560kg.
From memory the ball weight was a fraction over 150kg, at that time, I have not rechecked it since. I know it is heavier with the bits and pieces in the front storage area.

It has a ATM 300kg, although I do not intend it to be ever this heavy.
Tare should be around 1887kg, this is with weighing everything since weighing it on the weighbridge.(water tanks empty, no gas in cylinders or no awning,) These should weigh another 240kg by my estimates.
Total combined weight should be 4767kg, although the Nissan also has gone on a diet since weighing it.
I have replaced the old winch, which I am yet to decide if I really need it at all though. Extra battery storage has been removed,(I still have 160ah of aux battery) and the Trailblazer fridge has also been replaced for a 35ltr fridge

A couple more photos.

Storage draws drivers side.

I don't have any plumbed in gas, I connect the gas after carrying the bottle around to the kitchen.

Ok, struggled trying to get pictures to upload but finally think I got there!
Yah!

This is our little "Serenity" almost set-up!

Image

Now one of our usual set-up...

Image

- It has a water tap, water hose outlet and numerous 12V ports at rear for plugging devices in.
- Note the 100+ years old ironing board (was my Grandmums!) as extra kitchen bench!
- We have a canvas annex, but find the silver tarp (just clips on with heavy duty carabiners) extremly easy to set up, very wind resistant, keeps tent dry and clean from bird poo.
- A full length pole storage box is built into trailer side

Under tow...

Image

You can see the slide-out full width storage box which opens inside the tent, and can be easily accessed when packed up.
It also has a really big storage box at the front.
