Red face crusader 294RLT axles weight rating

I was curious as to which axle the other people's crusader 294RLT have.

Mine has 6 lug 5200 lb axles.

that has me musing about this:

if I am correct that means the actual gross allowed weight that I can legally be is 10,400 lbs. my certificate of origin listed my shipping weight as 9,061 lbs.
which means my cargo allowance is 1340 lbs.
I have a 60 gallon fresh water tank when filled weighs 498 lbs.
I spend 1/2 my time boondocking which leaves me 842 lbs. for every thing else I wish to bring. ie. food, clothes, generator, chairs, bedding etc.

15 - 20% (depending on how much & where you load it) is supported by the pin. So, according to PT's web site the 294RLT's GVW is 11,450. At 15% on the pin, that would make your axle weights 9,732 & at 20% the axle weights would be 9,160. So, you are well within your combined axles capacity of 10,400 lbs.
