I think that when calculating the weight the axle supports, you take the TT weight, and remove the weight of the axle and wheels, so that's a least 200# , same thing for the spring capacity, the springs don't need to support the axle and wheels...

Read my link from the issues I had with my x17z. I eventually had to sell it because Jayco refused to fix it. Here is the link.

Clearly snappypics got a lemon with a design flaw. I heard that axels have been changed since 2013 design.
Terrible bad experience he had, but it really could have happened to any trailer from any manufacturer.
I bought a x17z this summer and I am very happy with it
