Is the trailer running nose high? This could put undue stress on the rear axle as well.

I here ya ,the atvs are 1100 together but either way 40lbs or so should not break the camels back. That's like buying a car trailer but its not capable of carrying a car 2 atvs water and fuel should be within the abilities of the trailer.

Things people don't think about .
Dry weight of camper means absolutely nothing .
That number is the camper weight leaving factory.
Dealer fills propane tanks 100lbs
Dealer adds battery/batteries 100/200lbs
Any dealer add ons add to that dry weight

He's already added 200/300 lbs or more to that dry weight lowering your ccc before you get it.

It really shouldn't matter they should've put 7k axles under like everyone else building toyhaulers I mean what's the point on having it if you can't load it with what it's designed for. But yea I will keep you posted because its not right !
