GAWR for 2008 23D International Ocean Breeze
Does anyone possibly know the GAWR for a 2008 Intl 23D Ocean Breeze? The label on the street side is completely faded.
Thanks advance!

The 2008 International parts book on the Airstream website site at page I-63 lists:

Part number 410875-14 Axle, #3000 w/10" Brakes, 23' D

Note that our 2015 23D International Serenity still has the 3,000 pound axles with 10" brakes. We were able to upgrade to the 15" SenDel T03-56545T wheels and 15" Michelin LTX (P) 235/75R15 XL tires.

Thank you very much! I was having a hard time locating the info.

And... because of the dual axles that would make the combined axle wt rating 6000 lbs, correct?

Each axle stands on it's own merits. Each can carry 3000 pounds max. If one is carrying 2,500 pounds great, but the other carrying 3,500 pounds is overloaded while the total is still 6,000 pounds on a scale pad that supports both trailer axles at the same time.

That is why if getting close to the maximum load capacity, one should go to scales where you put each axle on separate weigh panel and get a reading. The trailer will need to be level.

I acquired individual wheel scales (two sets of four scales) and was able to see what each tire is carrying. The left-right weight distribution is important as well.
