There's a little bit of pig in both of them. The 1/2 axle carries lighter loads, but is also an easier axle for the shock absorbers to control on rough roadways. The 3/4 ton axle carries heavier loads but is substantially heavier and more likely to beat the hull out of owner and his Airstream on rough roadways.

We like the ride of our 1/2 ton and so does our Airstream, it's axles are easily capable of carrying more than we need at home and when we travel.

Wow....yall are out of control. Pull your trailer with whatever you please....but please do not cry to your insurance company when they deny your claim because you exceeded the limits of your TV. If yu want to push it to the limits and rip through transmissions and rearends...have a good time. Take responsibility for your own actions when you run on the edge...
