Yes, tire was only flat on the bottom.

Actually, there was a nail that had actually punctured where the sidewall and tread meet (shoulder?). Replaced the punctured tire with the matching spare, and then bought a new spare. Next flat that isn't repairable, I'll purchase a new set I guess.

Glad we checked again, caught it when we weren't on our way camping.

That is why the trailer manufacturer must publish a hitch weight. It becomes part of the equation used to check and balance the trailer's GVWR. When the full cargo capacity of the trailer is added to the GVW and the results is then added to the published hitch weight that figure must equal or exceed GVWR. Once the trailer is sold its hitch weight becomes the sole responsibility or its owner.

The vehicle manufacturer can set the GAWR on axles to a value they deem appropriate for that trailer. If there is excess GAWR it just becomes a reserve value. It's true value is what the vehicle manufacturer says it is.

A trailer's GVWR will always remain the same unless the vehicle manufacturer or a certified vehicle modifier changes it.

If a trailer leaves the factory with a functional propene system the full propane tanks become part of the trailers GVW.
