Pretty sure that GVWR is wrong. It wouldn't be the first time Cranky Ape screwed up something.

Correct. My '09 CC Magna has a 20,000# front axle, a 20,000# drive axle and a 14,000# tag axle. Towing rating is 15,000 and the ISX 650 is up to that task.
The MH's built on a Class 8 truck chassis can tow way more but they might be overlength in some states. Not sure they check that very often.

If I read the odometer correct it has over 600,000 miles with No information of an Inframe on the engine??? Not even the bottom end done on the engine?? Not to mention the service engine codes you have to swim through. If your thinking of buying put aside $25,000 up front just for the engine work by a qualified tech.

I don't think a inframe is warranted until closer to a million? Rolling in a set of bottom end bearings is no big deal. So 400,000 miles left in her? That thing would last me 40 years.

The first sentence in the description says it's a 1998 Freightliner.

Truck front axle can be 13200, each drive axle can carry a max of 20k (23k in Canada), each trailer axle can carry up to 20k. That extra dolly allows for the more weight.
Each axle can carry 20 if the spread is great enough. Standard configuration gives 32000 on a tandem drive.
