P.s. We were both wrong. The trailer weighs 3,500 lbs. Have to get the 4000 lb bags... :P
Nah, a ton it on the trailer axles, which makes me wonder is some kind of extra support on the trailer it's self is needed.

Perhaps a Timbren kit?

Sure there is, it's called "Abandon ship" and "RUN!!!"

But yeah, 4K bags for sure.

I think an axle flip is in order. I think you also need to increase your tongue weight. And make sure you switch those trailer tires out for some E rated LT tires as those are obviously overloaded.

Naw, he is piddling around with a DRW instead of getting an HDT. Oh well, it's his money.

If you think this setup is bad, how about this?? This is the A-liner we traded in on the Clipper last year. We used the A-liner because of the terrible roads in the part of Canada we were visiting. The bumps were so bad that the A-liner actually bent in the middle!! When we got back to the States we couldn't open the door without a hammer to pound it out of the door jam.

See! Even a small A-Liner was unsafe due to suspension issues!
YOU NEED THE 4000 lb BAGS!

And another thing - a 12-step program won't work with RVitis because most RVs have only one or two steps at the entry. (rimshot)
