Default How much does the top weigh?

Anyone know what approximate percentage of the overall weight of a trailer is the top half? I'm just curious.

Yeah I was guessing that too. About 1/3 of the overall weight on mine. That means each cable is only supporting about 250 Lbs. Not too bad.

Default Top part of HiLo trailer.

I domn't know the exact pounds. When I talked to JR for advice for our 90 Classic renovation he talked about using a crane to lift the seperated top off. Heavy enough for Ibuprofen or something stronger!!
