I'm glad it's working out that way. I could just see them sending a new sticker and saying oops we put the wrong sticker on, sorry.

Ken and Bama,

Thanks for all of your feedback.

Bama, Yeah I am with you, that would have been the easy fix - slam a new sticker with the lower capacity. Fortunately the Purchase Order had everything delineated and Forest River and the dealer are going to fix it.

I did have to remind the current owner that the current spare tire probably won't fit either. They are tenacious about getting these issues resolved so they were going to alert the dealer on this issue as well.

I wonder how many other unsuspecting buyers of these 27DFWP's are running around over capacity because the stickers and axles aren't in sync? That could prove disasterous for someone!

Thanks again for your help! With any luck, soon I will be a new WolfPack owner that has the capacity to haul my stuff!!

Here is what I am hauling:


And he is where we are currently sleeping when on trips:

Its one thing when a customer doesn't know what they have for capacity and over load it but something totally different when you purchase a specific capacity and receive a different one which is lighter. Thats when the liability goes to the company or the dealer. I think is should be listed in their literature that they are 2 capacities offered and also educate their dealers on the 2. Or just build the heavier one because I can't imagine there being much difference in the price at the factory level.

I think someone on this forum or on another said that if you order it with the 5200# axles instead of 3500# then this is a $500 upgrade....but don't quote me on that one!

If someone wanted to replace the axles what exactly would they need to order???

Not sure if it's an issue for me but just wondering?

They sent me axles with complete hubs and springs along with wheels, tires, lugs and centers.

krabid covered the entire units. You'll need all this if going up in axle size changes the tire size as well the lug count.

If the tire size stays the same you can possibly just order the axles, hubs, springs and hangers. If the hubs and brakes are the same size you could possibly just order the axles, springs and hangers and reuse the hubs.

I had to change wheels because went from 5 lug to 6. I don't think the 5 lug wheels will fit the 5200# axles because the bearings are bigger on the 5200# axles. at least on the ones I put on they were. Thats why I had to also change the wheel centers as well. The 6 lug hub centers are way bigger that the 5 lug.
