Default What is your Empty Weight?

Van's publishes an empty weight of 1240 lbs. on the RV-14.

What is yours? What do you have installed that may make it heavier? Paint, interior, Auto pilot?, constant speed prop, etc.?

Mine was 1267 before paint. Plan to weigh it again soon.
Should have said: dual g3x, stand-by alternator, carbon fiber constant speed prop, full Classic Aero interior with carpet.
