It's my understanding that I should never put more than approx. 4600 lbs. of cargo into my zt32qb zinger travel trailer? That sounds like a lot of cargo! Can the suspension/frame really handle that kind of load? Isn't the average max. load for a trailer like this around usually around 1500 lbs. ???

Their numbers don't add up but they are nowhere 4600 lbs.



Dry Weight: 6661

GVWR: 8010

Carrying Capacity: 3089

Hitch Weight: 950

Axle Weight: 5711



Disregarding the funny Carrying Capacity number the GVWR (max it can weigh) is 8010. Subtract from that the dry weight of 6661 (or whatever your weight tag shows) would leave 1349 lbs.



Look at the tag on your actual trailer for GVWR and then locate the shipping weight and go from there...

x2 or you can go weigh your TT empty at a cat scale and subtract that weight from the GVWR listed on the tag on your trailer (usually somewhere near the front left side or front of the TT). This will tell you exactly how much cargo capacity you have.

I double checked all the stickers -

GVWR 5063kg or 11162 lbs.

GAWR (each axle) 2304kg or 5080 lbs.

Cargo Carrying Capacity 1985kg

Weight of cargo should never exceed 2109kg or 4650 lbs.

Trailer Weight 6452lbs.



something doesn't seem right?



Can my trailer really hold up to 4650 lbs. of cargo ???

Sounds like you need to figure out what trailer you have. I quoted the spec for a ZT32QB straight from Crossroads website.



The axle weight and dry weight are close but the GVWR is in left field from the website spec's????



I would believe the sticker on the trailer first though.



Drop an e-mail to Crossroads or call them and their engineers can get you straight.
