Thanks for the responses. I read those threads. One was way bent compared to mine, and the other turned out to be just the OPís eyesight
I had trailer come check it out today. He said it does look like it goes up a bit but is structurally sound. He said itís not worth doing any reinforcements or anything.
I just ran to a CAT scale.
Tongue weight - 620 lbs (with 2/3 full fresh water tank and 100 lbs dometic chest fridge at the front)
Total trailer weight - 4,360 lbs
So tongue weight is around 14%
Sticker GVWR is 3,750, so Iím a little overweight.
In the past we replaced the 3,500 lbs axle with a 5,200 lbs axle and larger wheels. Weííbe been running on 6,000 lbs leaf springs (3k each side), so weíve been way over springed. Going over bumps when towing the trailer rocks back and forth like a teeter totter rotating on the axle and bouncing on the TVís rear suspension.
The trailer guy is gonna replace our 6,000 lbs leaf springs with 5,000 lbs leafs springs, as he says this will make for a softer and more forgiving ride for our trailerís frame.
Any issues with being at 4,360 lbs when sticker GVWR is only 3,750?
Iíve attached some photos of the trailer at the CAT scale. The trailer itself is not level, as the tongue jack is jacked up pretty high to get the truck out and back in. Dunno how useful the photos will be, but still
