The axles are the 5k axles, forgot to put that. I know the trailer may be a little lightweight, but you have to understand that we will never have over 6k on this trailer, including the trailer itself. The 10k pound figure I posted was not a guaranteed number, but more of an estimate of what i would feel safe with. I know the limits and if I thought that I was nearing those limits when loading the trailer I would not allow it to be done that way. I have seen too many people going down the road in my area with shabby looking trailers and parts falling off of them. (I live in a very redneck part of TN) I would be ashamed to have something that is putting other in possible danger from overloading the trailer and having a tire blow or axle break causing me to wreck.
