I have a 2014 Forrest River\Prime Time\Spartan 1032. This is a a toy hauler. The UVW is 12,500 lbs. You can add up to 4000 lbs. in gear, water and toys. This brings the weight up to16,500 lbs. +/-.
Here is the bull - the axles are rated at 7,000 and the four tires together are at just over 12,000.
I have had 2 blow outs in the last 4 months when I was at 15,500 lbs. Both over the axle and tire rating. The tire rating actually goes DOWN for double axle trailers! I have talked directly with axcle manufacture and they said that this configuration is in voliation of their recommendations -
So here is my question -
Do anyone else have these types of numbers where the total vehical weight far exceeds the axle and tire recommedations -?
and two - if you do - are you willing to help with a class actions lawsuit? I am at about 9,000 dollars in damages from these 2 blow outs!
