16,000 - 20,000 lbs usually for the front part ("truck", "tractor", "cab"). But the empty trailer adds several tons more. For example a 53 foot long simple box ("van") trailer weighs 10,000-15,000 with nothing in it. So a whole 65 foot long empty system (truck and trailer) weighs over 30,000 lbs. Shorter box, flatbed, and covered wagons systems would weigh less. Systems with an extra long truck or specialized systems, like some of those with tank and pumping equipment, may weigh more. Adding to this answer. I have a 2003 kenworth w900 with a stepdeck trailer and i weigh 32,000 empty.

The weight of the truck depends on the size. If you have a semi truck with a trailer it will weigh less, rather than if it had the trailer it would weigh more. If you have a large engine than it will have less space in the interer and less space inside. If you have bunk-beds than that will take more space, and so on. So really it all depends on the brand,( for interer) size, and truck check.
