    I weighed the Blazer today, since I'm looking for a trailer to haul it on and wanted to be sure I got one with a high enough GVW. With >1/4 tank of gas, no back seat, the hardtop on, and no one in it, weight was 5680 lbs. Basically this means that a 7000 lb rated trailer won't cut it, as they weigh around 1500 lbs empty. In the market for an 18', 10,000 lb GVW unit. Just thought I'd post this as a reference.
