Yeh I suppose. I never weighed my late model DC, but with two sets of weights, AWF, and 15.5's(no fluid) on 14" rear rims I figure it's about 5700#. My 12,000# rated trailer weigh's 3,000#. I've heard of LA's weighing over 8,000#, but I suppose that was with ballast in the rears.
Thanks for the information guys. Glenn F.
