Roger has a good point about the way axle
makers define the load on their axles, so I agree that the axle
is okay. The GVW, on the other hand, does include the unsprung weight
, springs...) and the tongue weight
, so if Bigfoot
actually meant the GVWR is 3500 lb (not just that the trailer weight
is limited by the axle), then Steve's 15B17CB is well over it. In practice, I doubt there's a problem with the trailer.
are often sized to just barely accommodate the axle's capacity, it would be interesting to check on their pressure and ratings at that pressure.
Of course, this has nothing to do with the non-existent 15-foot Bigfoot
