I disagree. Your axles are 4400lbs capacity, each. I am quite positive.

We haven't heard back from the OP since he made the 16K statement. I sure hope he doesn't load up thinking he's got 16K worth of axle capacity!!!

I have a 2012 Lacrosse 301RLS and last year I had a bad problem with tire wear related to the axle being under weight for the camper. My dry weight is 7122 lbs ,GVW is 9481. The installed axles were 4200lbs each. After a lot of effort by my dealer Lippert replaced the axles and springs with axles rated at 5200lbs each. Look at the post with pictures under Next2dixie...

axles crusader 325 res

We had 5,000 lb. axels and found them to be bare minimum for the trailer. We bent the back axel with the trailer barely loaded. After doing much research including speaking with our local MTO they gave us much advice! So we went with recommendations from trailering experts and replaced them with 7,000 lb. axels...incidentally after contacting forest river...and making them aware of the situation they offered no compensation...
