FAST EAGLE: Please give me a link to the regulation you quoted? That would be very helpful. I am still dealing with Keystone and the latest email from them:

"Good Morning Mr. Stone,

I am in receipt of your photos. In response Keystone will be sending you the correct fed and VIN stickers for your unit. These will have the correct information for you unit. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. "

So it will be interesting to see what (if anything) they send. I could not figure out how to send a private message or I would have done to so to FAST EAGLE.

Gary, N5PHT

The problem isn't just limited to TT's and 5th wheels. Our DSDP had an advertised NCC of 5,500#'s so I wasn't too worried.
When the rig came in it had 663#'s of CCC and all of that was on the rear axle, the front was overloaded by 160+#'s before we ever loaded anything or got aboard. After some discussion Newmar had Spartan replace the OEM 12,000# front axle with a 14,600# one. While on the rack Spartan tech's inspected the whole rig and wondered why Newmar had derated the rear axle to 19,000#'s. They said it was a 20,000# axle and nothing Newmar did would have changed that. Now we have a bunch of CCC but I had to go to much higher rated tires and wheels in front.
