It's good there messing around with weight numbers while we're out here traveling with our families! Jeeez

My main concern is not so much the GVWR as the GAWR. At the end of the day these units only have a 3500 lb rated lippert axle & combined 3500 lb rated tires & hubs. Bouncing my single axle trailer down Canadian highways (which are no where near as well maintained U.S. freeways) will likely result in a lot of bouncing on that light weight axle/hub/tire combination. Thus my decision to upgrade the axle/hub/tire to 6,000 lbs.
