What effect does upgrading the axles have?

On the new 2015 Vengeance touring, there is an option of upgrading the three 6000lb axles to 7000lb, what effect does that have on the weight rating of the trailer?

Thanks for any insight into this,
James

The 3 axels on our 2014 Vengenance 39R12 touring are 7000 lb. With a max gross of 20,000 for the fiver, they would have to be.

Hi Ultraboy,
thanks for your reply. I have been reading some of your experiences with your Vengeance.

BTW:what was the dry weight of your trailer when you got it?
Also, what hitch are you using?

Thanks,
James

When I selected the Maxxis tire option on my 2016 Wildcat it came in with 6000# axles whereas every other one I looked at had 5000# axles. My max cargo capacity appears to be in the 3000# range whereas the others I looked at all showed cargo cap in the 2000# range. It was a no charge option and a pleasant surprise.

WithAVengeance,
My alias is papabear1 and I have a 2015 FRV touring 38L12. According to my sticker I have a GVWR of 21370 lbs, but my LCI pin box states GVWR 18000. I'm working thru this now with FR.
