That brochure weight is always low under the disclaimer it doesn't include options and a few other exclusions. Makes a trailer look lighter/easier to tow than it really is & makes the ccc look higher. But that issue isn't unique to your model. What does your factory sticker say the GVWR of the trailer is? And if you have a scale weight loaded for camping what was that?
There are some threads on here with this type of issue for heavy 5ers where the frames/axles/suspension have issues, but seems less common on travel trailers. What exactly was the failure on the 2 previous sets of axles & springs?
