No, without model numbers, manufacture date and part numbers it's just a rant and nothing more.

Even your tort lawyer would tell you that.

Let's try to keep this constructive.

Hey! Let's not go to war over this. I'll tell you what I'll do. When I get home, I'll post everything I can from the work order. It may well have the name of the company that made the axle. Like I said, they provided the parts, including the axle, for no charge to us, which I'm very grateful for. In the meantime, if you look at the axle and it's round and one inch in diameter, or less, you've got the bad axle. The good axle is a triangular tube, not round. It's heavy and reinforced, several ways. There is no way you can not recongnize the difference, because it's so obvious. I have to really hand it to our Paul Sherry serviceman, because he recognized, immediately, what the problem was when we brought the unit in. So, I can't say enough good words about the dealership. I get home about 7pm EST, so, as soon as I get the info, I'll post it on this site. Really, I didn't want to piss you off, but I don't want you to get stuck on the road, either. So, I know I'm ranting, but I'm ranting on your behalf and for your safety. Thanks for your patience.

Don't want to be accused of "Ranting" about the weights and capacities and potential serious problems with axel/tire failure.

We have a 2011 Wolf Pup 16-p ser # 4x4tck710by203211 purchased 10/12/2011

This unit has: Dry weight certified weighed on 1/13/12 at 2870lbs

Brochure cargo carrying capacity: 1152lbs Total weight = 4022Lbs...or more?

Axel rating: 3500lbs Tire rating (two each) 3520 lbs.

The suspension clearly is "bottomed out" causing the axel tube and the tires to absorb ALL the shock - This unit is showing a 4 Degree camber after only 500 miles and also showing tire wear on the inside.

With a 50 Gal. water tank (417lb if full) and a nice 200lb rack on the back someone could easily have 4000 to 4500 lb of total trailer weight.

Specifications as follows:

Axel lippert Components #231694 GAWR 3500 lbs. mfg date 9/03/10

Tires St 205-75-14 class c 1760 lbs at 50 psi = 3520 lbs at 50 psi

Be careful! Be VERY careful....

Sometimes it is necessary to read through the "ranting" of a post to find out the purpose of the reply. When I come across a rant I will decide whether or not to read it or skip it.

I called and talked with the service man at Paul Sherry RVs today. His name is Jake Shell. He confirmed that there were issues with some wolf pup axels. He told me to direct any one with an issue to thier website which is www.paulsherryrvs.com

What do people do when they get to their website? Nothing there about any axel issues.

16R Extra Room

Looking at the 16R with the extra room. I was wondering how functional the dinette is with the room foled up in the storage position. Are you still able to use the trailer with the room folded up or does it take up too much room on the inside?

Looking at options.
