3,500 lbs, because that is all the trailer axle is rated to carry. You also have to subtract the weight of the trailer (empty) form the 3,500 lbs to get your maximum available capacity.
With a 6X12, I would say that you should be able to put about 2500 lbs of payload in that trailer and not exceed the 3500 lbs axle weight limit.
