    Well, they aren't axles but I couldn't think of a better term. Whatever they are, they still rate them as 7,000lbs, 8,000lbs, etc. Definitely NOT axles though!

    Thanks (both to your and Second Chance Rob) for the reply. Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss something.

    I scheduled a date in June on our trip East to visit family. We are putting the 8K system and disc brakes on our Solitude. We are very much looking forward to getting this in place before becoming another member of the broken spring club. We have 15,000 miles and 5 years on the rig and know the clock is ticking not in our favor.

    We're ordering a new 2019 Riverstone 39FK, and we're putting the MORride IS and disc brakes on it. It's a $6,600 option but as everyone else has said, it'll be well worth it. Pay once, cry once.
