How much does a 16 ft flatbed trailer weigh? Since most trailers of this type weigh about 100lbs per foot of deck length (16′ trailers will weigh about 1,600lbs, 18′ trailers weigh about 1,800lbs and 20′ trailers weigh about 2,000lbs), you must deduct that trailer weight off of the GVWR to find out what a trailer can truly carry on top of its own bed.
