Flagstaff 8528 BHWS

We want to buy a 2011 fifth wheel Flagstaff of 7500 pounds (with 3 bunkbeds in the back). But, someone told us that the axles were not very tough (3500 pounds each). They are supposed to be enough strong to carry itself but when the fifth wheel is loaded, are they OK? My boyfriend want to change them for bigger axles, but I don't think it's necessary. What do you think about that? Is Flagstaff a good tow? Are torflex good axles? We do not know many things about fifthwheels, in general.
Thank you for your help.

Sorry, my english is not perfect!

F-150 XTR 2014
Not yet a fifh wheel....

Because the pin weight will be on the TV, the 7,000 lbs for the two axles will be ok.
Many fivers are that close to their weight limit.

There is nothing wrong with your English. I wish I spoke French as good as your English is!
