Axle rating

I have a 34' '83 Limited with three axles. Are the axels on tthe current 34' 2 axle heavier duty? Point being if I needed to replace m axels with the new ones would the unit have more load capacity?

Thanks

The 34' are still 3-axle trailers. The 30 and 31 are the longest 2-axle units.

There are several heavier axles available than you probably currently have. There is a 4400# axle on the 30' slideout and a 5000# axle on the Canadian 30' slideout. The plain 34' has 3200# axles and a 34' slideout has 3500# axles. These numbers from the Classic parts book.

However, I wonder whether the axles are the limiting factor. The frame may well limit you on an older unit before the axles do. The current slideouts undoubtedly have a beefed up frame.
