    Anyone know what trailer house axles are rated at? I was gonna borrow a trailer to haul the oak logs down to the sawmill and my neighbor has a 18 foot gooseneck with tandem trailer axles. Just not sure if they're heavy enough to handle the weight of the logs. Which actually I dont know the weight but I'm guessing 7 to 10K.

    Tires are probably more limiting than the axles. I have a trailer that has 12" tires, and it's axle is 3K!
    My sawyer buddy has an 18' trailer that we load logs on, and we think a 6 ton load is hard to get on. I'll bet you'll be OK.
