Axle issues with FR Rockwood 26' ultra light

We bought FR Rockwood in 2012
We had many issues with it.
The most important one is the trailer sways and drives the truck. I have made mention of this problem here on the FR site. Most responded that it was the truck, it was our WDH, it was the truck tires shocks front end. We had all those checked fixed at the cost of about $7K. Traliler still sways excessively !! Finally after 3 and 1/2 years I figured it out. The axles for the trailer are tooo light for this trailer!!! Dry weight according to factory Approx 5800# actual dry weight 6700#!!!! Call warranty agent and he got all over this!! Axles were for 6000#. By the time we put our stuff in it was well over 7000#!!
Just a heads up.

Just so we have a clarification, what does the yellow sticker on the side of your camper say is dry weight?(5800?) What is gross weight (GVWR)?
