axle specs?

Does anyone know were I can find out what size axles are on a sprinter 323bhs? Does Keystone just use a standard axle across the board? Are they 7k lb axles? thanks

Crawl underneath and look at the tag. I'm going to guess here, and say that you will have al-ko 5200# axles. That is what I have and our trailers gross the same weight--11,200 minus tongue weight equals weight on axles.

The only way to be sure is to examine the axles. Supposedly, Keystone also uses Dexter's in addition to the Al-Ko's.

If your trailer came through with a build sheet and the build sheet is still in the paperwork, the axles might be listed there which would save a trip under the trailer.

The axle ratings should be on the label on the front drivers side of the trailer along with dry weight and GVWR, vin#, tire pressure and build date. The metal tags attached to the axles themselves will give you ratings and manufacturer also.

RV trailer axles are one of the mysteries many owners encounter when researching the actual equipment their trailer has been delivered with.

The DOT regulations for RV trailer axle certification directs the vehicle manufacturer to set GAWR so the vehicleís GVWR will not be exceeded.

This is most often seen when 7000# axles have been used. Once the trailer has been built and the GVWR has been determined the 7000# axles may have to degraded to a lower GAWR. Iíve seen them as low as 6750#. Of course any axle can be degraded by the vehicle manufacturer to ensure it is mathematically accurate at the time of first sale.

Tire selection is determined by the RV trailerís certified GAWR.

My Hornet has Al-Ko 5200# which easily exceeds the GVWR of the TT.
