WaywardWaylander Posted March 9, 2016 Report Share Posted March 9, 2016 Looking at the specs on some 5th wheels, something about the weight capacities doesn't add up. I'll try to explain... The example 5th wheel has a shipping weight of 13,140. It has an indicated carrying capacity of 3745. Am I wrong to add these two to reach a GVWR of 16,885? Assuming that's correct, there are two axels rated at 7000 apiece. This would seem to suggest a max carrying capacity of 14,000. Is that right? If so, this is a trailer with a GVWR of 16,885 and an axel rating of that is 2885 short of the GVWR. Am I missing something? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
