You're right Doc. But I was replying to owenssailor's original post question, and he stated the GVWR of his trailer was 7000#. If that is incorrect, then he may be OK. I didn't look up the specs for his trailer since he provided the number along with his question.
And sure enough, the specs say 7000#. Look here: 2012 Jayco Jay Feather Select 28 U Trailer : Reviews, Prices and Specs : RV Guide
