I see that but the wheels and tires are larger thus probably offering more capacity. Either way.

It's got nothing to do with wheels and tires.

If the axle rating is 6k the axle rating is 6k.

It goes back to the stupid idea that a trailers GWVR has to be the sum of the axle ratings. Some companies have wised up and stated the GVWR the sum of the axle ratings plus TW as it should be. Yet they stil offer the old GVWR too.

Exactly.

If the wheels and tires on one made a difference then they both wouldn't have the same axle rating.

The concept of adding TW to axle rating to get GVWR escapes you don't it?

Just odd but I've noticed that with CamSuperline. They would have a trailer with 2 6k axles but be rated for a little over 13,000lbs rather than 12,000. I guess the trailer would have a 1200lb tongue weight for a 13,200lb rating I guess??

MDLawn- I had the trailer first, then got the truck, THEN realized my booboo... never drove them together for 7-8 months cause I was paranoid of getting pulled over! So then I got my CDL.

The first time I drove them combined on roads, was when I went to take the test! Lol

(I practiced parking and backing in the lot at my old shop)

I'm under CDL for now but I've been thinking of jUst getting it done. Then I have it and won't have to worry about a higher combo.

Whats class CDL do you have to get ? And you can test with your truck and trailer? I too am close to getting a dump trailer and want the biggest I can get within reason.
