Glad to know that! Thank you for taking time to clear that up!

My case is reportedly being 'taken care of' so to speak. It has been recommended that my axles, wheels, tires and spare be replaced(along with the factory load labels). My factory rep has been notified to send them here to my dealer. I've not heard anything since last Tuesday though. I was told it would take a couple of weeks to get it on the way. We'll see though. Nothing as of yet. When they take the first actual step, I'll let you know. Still believe in seeing it in action before I truly believe it.

Well, well. I just finished reading this thread, not sure how I missed it before.

My 365 was probably one of the first off the line for this new model. It came off on 2/2/2011. I got the king bed, 2nd air, heated tanks, rear electric stabs, washer and dryer, standalone table and chairs and equaflex - but no outside kitchen. During manufacturing I asked the factory rep as to ccc, they said 1785 pounds. I asked about axle upgrades and they said, nope.
Well sticker says dry weight is 12638 and ccc is 1363. My actual weight when traveling in 2011 (a bit of fresh water for the road, and us fully loaded with stuff as we travel for 2 months straight every year) was 2710 on the pin and an extra 11420 on the rear axles, so that puts us slightly over gvwr. This year we got a few more things in it and I don't remember what we weighed but it is probably 100 pounds more. So we have actually no room to maneuver with our weight. Can't fill up a full tank of water, we'll be way overweight.

So, I am very curious to see how this plays out for our early model 365's which were obviously not thought through all the way on weight limits. I do love it, but am concerned as you guys too.

Update:
The axles are reportedly on the way to my dealer and the wheels are being drop shipped. Will take a few days to get here. So far, all has been done like the people at Sandpiper said it would. Will let you know when they are here and installed.

Very nice! Great looking rig! Good job on the posting. I love the wheels!
This is the wheel that I picked out from Tredit Tire that is supposed to be coming with the axles.
