Anyone with links to the 4400? Is this something a suspension shop orders but isn't common on the Internet for some reason?

I think laws need to be changed to prevent this kind of thing from happening
in the first place. If you add 30+ gallons of fresh water, 40# propane, 10
gallons of black water, You have over loaded the trailer considerably. That
does not include food clothes towels clean clothes people pet food or pets.

Redneck-trailer.com

I’m in the same boat. I’m going to have an RV shop swap out my 3500lb bent axles for 4400lb axles. I’ll let them research and get the correct supplies and do the work. This is beyond what I want to tackle as a DIY project. They said they use Redneck Trailer Supply for the parts.

Going to a bigger beam means new brakes, wheels, tires too? Or can I bolt my 5 lug brakes onto a 3 inch beam?
