The 6k and 7k have 16" wheels available I believe.
The 7k axles have 8 lugs and the 6k only 6 lugs.

I will have to take a closer look at the axles when I go look at the trailer next Saturday.

I have the 6 lug aluminum wheels and 6k axles. When I scaled the trailer empty there was 10100 lbs for both trailer axles (5050 lbs each). Leaving around 1800-1900 pin weight. I also have the Linc wireless remote. Makes you lazy but it's great adjusting the landing gear from inside the cab when hooking up. Just make sure if you operate the slides you make certain the interior doors are shut, otherwise you won't know til it's too late and stuff is smashed.

That's not to bad then still leaves plenty of room for gear and I was expecting a little more pin weight!! I hear you on checking all the doors and such before operating the slides I will most likely be a bit on the obsessive side about the slides for awhile. This will be quite a change going from a TT with no slides to this 5er!!

I was really close to losing a door because I was outside and operating the remote and for some odd reason I went in to check and sure enough it would have ripped the door handle plus whatever else off and maybe damage the slide. The remote is really nice, especially if your in a tight spot and need to watch trees and other stuff. This is a huge 5er so most sites are smaller now. Everyone will watch you now. Welcome to the big leagues of 5ers. 42' long, most places you have to check for big rig friendly sites. You will enjoy it. What are you pulling with?

2012 F-350 SRW with the factory fifth wheel prep package and the 11500 gvw. I went from a half ton Dodge to this Ford. I absolutely love the 6.7 diesel.

Do you drop all your stabilizers before running out your slides or after?

You should be fine with that truck. Enjoy and let us know how it is. Any questions, shoot me a message. There aren't too many 356qbq owners on here yet.

I level fore/aft with the landing gear, then the rear stabs, then slides out. Reverse to stow.
