If you're looking at single-axle Camplite, WARNING.

I purchased a single axle 2016 Camplite TBS that I discovered last year was built with an undersized Dexter Torflex axle (2,500#). Should have been one rated at 4,500#.  Replaced under warranty, but such a hassle. Whole story here: https://www.livinlite.com/forum/index.php/topic,983.msg4298.html#msg4298

Two lessons learned.
  • Don't believe the trailer stickers about maximum loaded weight.
  • Crawl under and look at the sticker on the axle to confirm maximum load rating.

The original 16dbs had 3500# axles - TWO of them.

Sigh.
