Here's mine, although I'd hardly call it a COMP rig.

(this is minus stacks and 2.5" coils on the dodge)

Hey Lance, what kind of mileage is Mike getting out of those Krawlers? I haven't really seen anyone running them on a heavy DD like that yet.

A goose neck like that weighs some where around 150 to 175 lbs per foot. So a 28' would be 4200 to 4900 lbs empty. This is not a given with any trailer because it depends on how they are built but it is a ball park figure.
