Thanks old coot I understand what your saying makes sense and was what I was also thinking the whole time. But at the same time I didn't want to hurt anything either.

Even knowing that, I don't think I would purposely overload a trailer axle as they are certainly not built like a truck rear end or tested nearly as harshly as a truck. The testing is quite expensive and I doubt very much if Lippert expends that kind of resources.

IMO, all rv trailer suspension, axles, etc are junk in comparison to automotive type suspension, axles, etc.

Would overload a GM, Ford or even Dodge without worrying, would I overload a Lippert or other trailer suspension? Not knowingly, I don't trust them.

Agree on rv stuff. Equipment trailers seem to be better.

Vehicles....if you're in a pinch. But you never know when somethings gonna give or someone stops short in front of you. Just sayin.

Sorry op

At this point I don't have a choice I have a baby on the way so a new camper is out of the question. I will make it work one way or the other.

If you are at capacity of the trailer not ideal but you maybe not in that bad of shape as I mentioned before some weight is on the tongue. (Depends how you parked / weighed on the scales).

When I weighed it was with the camper hooked up. So my weight it with just trailer axles on scale and that's it no tongue weight
