I built a trailer for my Alberg in 2001. Used two 6K Dexter Torflex axles. The tyres are your weak link. Mine are load range E 10 ply. I have heard that axles are rated at 80% of their load capacity. So the two axles typically have a 2,400# "reserve". The Torflex axles were used because they are torsion sprung and can have a much lower drop than leaf sprung axles. But they are set in hard rubber bushings..................because of that I jack up the trailer when not in use to take the weight off the axles.
Gord is correct 9,000# is the figure to use..................that is empty weight, no fuel, stores or water aboard. I have towed the Alberg about 3,000 miles total with no issues to date.

What is the weight of my non liner A30 ? Just the bare boat, mast etc. I'm considering a trailer and trying to work out if the axles are strong enough.
