    What's the axle limits on a single axle pulling a 48' or should I say gross ? What's a comfortable number to stay around ? 27,000-30,000 maybe even 26,000

    If it were me,I would load no more than about 28-30,000 pounds on it. And that is if it was an easy skid load. Depending on your plate registration,you would be about 64,000 total.

    If Donna's pool boy is driving, you have a 2000lb tolerance in most states.
