??? The GVWR for the camper is usually the axle capacity plus the dry hitch or pin weight, so axles on all campers are always maxed out when at it's GVWR.

Dave
getting axles ratings is not as easy as it might seem . they post specs but very limited specs . they do not get into the things that really matter and stick to the fluff stuff , but i guess that's what sales .

Looks like that unit has lots of options with a cargo of 2400 . the tires it seems are rated at 2418 . which gives a max load of 9672 , with a dry trailer weight of over 6900 and cargo of qouted from the dealer 3014 , or from what i can find 2700 brings a low total to 9600 . not cutting it close are they , but then again what do they care , you'll be carrying 1000 on the tongue
