The GVWR is 3500. The axle is 3000 lbs. I have a WD hitch. The trailer sticker says 3046 pounds. So adding the battery, propane, then you have little room for CCC. I have read all the posts about the X17Z and limited CCC and the poor design of the weight limitations.
Doesn't upgrading the axle at least buy me some safety for the axle when loaded to the GVWR and save my tires which are wearing quick and appear to be overloaded by the wear on the inside tread? I can do this for under a $1000, that's a lot cheaper than a new TT.
I understand, I still have to consider the frame limitations, but I would feel a lot safer with an upgraded axle (5200lb), hubs/brakes and wheel/tires. Am I missing something that I don't understand.
