    WoW!
    You guys answered my questions too.
    We just bought a 25' w/dove/ramps and 2 7000# axles and I was contemplating adding a 3rd for extra weight. Then again if I'm going to haul something heavy I'll use something heavier to haul it with.

    tandom dual is the way to go like others said 8 tires on the ground, duals can handle the stress in tight turns better than 3 axles. all good advice
