Default Stupid Question: Weight guesstimation skill (pics pls)

i find myself looking at trailers and not really being able to guess how much they weigh..

for example i have no idea how big a 2500lb boat/trailer would be...lol

pics and examples?

my grandpa just bought himself a brand new trailer, 36 foot i think and i was surprised to find that its weight 5820 (minus shit packed lol)
so anyways pics/discussions?

some of the new trailers are ultra light, if you get into the older stuff the weight basically doubles.

5x10' was told it weighed 1000 pounds. I dont know that is very accurate. When we hauled scrap metal and went across the scale empty. It could have only weighed 700-800
