Default QB Fuselage weight

My qb fuselage should arrive in 5 months or so, and wanted to start planning. Any idea on the weight?

The crated weights are posted on Van's website. My fuselage at "QB" stage was heavy enough to be a job for two to lift/move it (mostly we "transferred" from one surface to another). Hard to accurately guess at the weight but I'd put it between 150 and 200 lbs maybe.

Thx Turner. I live close to Vans and therefore am foregoing the crate. I have to use a uhaul and Vans will help me load it. My concern was when I get it home.

To be safe I'd plan on three "normal" or two "strong/young" people (guys) to move it - if I had it to do again I'd have a third person: it was tricky even just moving it up from a lower platform to a larger/higher table.

EZ, I just got my QB fuse. It is BIG. And Heavy!
You can probably carry it a short distance with at least 3 ADULT males, but a rolling cart would be the ticket. You will need one anyway, so build it.
