Sometimes, I really feel like the weight ratings on our vehicles is a joke. I mean around the houston area I regularly see trucks like ours hauling small dozers around on 30ft goosenecks.

On my 2500HD Duramax short bed extended cab, I have been towing a 32.5 fiver with a GVWR of 14,000lbs. When I ordered the fiver I got the 7,000lbs axles for the oversized breaks. I use the Breaksmart break controller and in the past 2 years I have not had a problem. Earlier this year when I needed new tires I went to a LT265 75R16 for extra load rating. right after I got the truck I added 3200lb timbrens. I have made 3 trips coast to coast, using I10, I5 and this time I40 and RT99. The fiver and truck ride level, no breaking problems or pulling up 6 and 8% grades.

Last year I had the truck and then the truck and fiver weighted on a CAt scale. The truck with full fuel, myself and my wife and all the regular stuff we carry weighed, Steer Axle 4240, Drive Axle 3200 and Gross Weight 7440. With the truck the same and the fiver attached, Steer Axle 4300, Drive Axle 6220, trailer axles 12700 and Gross Weight 23240 this was on the 245 tires. I believe the sticker on the truck gives fron axle 4800, rear axle 6048 and gross of 9200 with the stock tires. The 265 tires have a rating of 3415 in single configuration, oh I am running single wheel configuration. The 05 rating for CGWR is 23,000lbs.

I do not worry about it at all.

tpinck,
you do realize that you are over the weight limit on your rear axle? If the door sticker is exceeded you can get a ticket for being overweight.

Yes, but 175lbs I am not really worried about, besides that in my travels coast to coast 3 time, I have never seen a weight station that specified an RV and most in CA specify no pick-ups, so how would I get a ticket? Since that weighin I have learned that by putting water in my fresh water tank lightens the pin weight on the rear axle. The tank is behind the trailer axles.

Cool, looks like you have it figured out. I have heard here in so. cal they are looking harder at TT, because so many people are overweight. A nd pulling doubles attracts them even more. I have not had any issues either.

tpinck, Those numbers on the truck look just like mine.

With the trailer, you added 3060 to the truck through the hitch pin, the axles weigh 12,700 for a gross of 15,760. Trailer sticker of 14,000.........

That's 1,760 over on the trailer alone. That may get somebodies attention. More than the 175 or so on the truck.

You may have to run with no water in any tank to get the trailer gross down.

Just my 2 cent.

on edit: As noted earlier, beefing up the componants doesn't change the sticker on the truck or trailer that the cop looks at to get his numbers.

The axle rating is based on the tires. Has nothing to do with the axle itself. Mine tows great.

This is true, but the DOT goes by the sticker, not by the tires. Unless you go to the DOT and get an inpection and pay the extra fees.
