For a given trailer, the axle
is chosen to support the weight
of the trailer and the average load a reasonable person would load for the intended use (In our case loaded for camping, not hauling all your household goods cross country). It's based on averages. It's not a one to one correlation. If you had a 2200 lb axle
and you replace with the same, you should have no problems.
Usually there is a tag on the axle
giving it's design load. On a torsion axle you need to get one with the same down angle as the original. Paul, the Boler
guy, should be able to help you there.
