    Solitude 346FLS - 8K Axles

    Hi folks. Looking to upgrade ...... wondering on a 346FLS if we order the 8K Axels w/Disc Brakes will the GVW sticker be updated to reflect increased capacity? Has anyone ordered w/8K Axels? Has anyone ordered w/ disc brakes? Thoughts or opinions? Thanks!!

    I can't tell you about the 346FLS specifically. What I can tell you is that upgrading the Solitude 310GK to the 8K axles with load range H tires changes the GVWR on the sticker from 15,000 lbs. to 18,000 lbs. I assume something similar would happen with the 346FLS.

    On a related note, I hope you're planning on upgrading your tow vehicle, too. at 16,800 lbs. GVWR (without the axle upgrade), the 346FLS is too much trailer for a single rear wheel 3/4-ton truck.

    Edit/PS: we have installed disc brakes on both of our fifth wheels... it reduced the stopping distance by almost half. You'll love them.

    Thanks for the reply Rob. I was kind of hoping they would resticker the weight rating. It makes sense but you never know. Good to hear about the disk brakes!! Lol, yes a 250 wouldn’t cut it. We have a 450 on order, however, I’m hearing 4-10 months to deliver. Most things are messed up this year. Can you imagine the tow police on that one!, Lol.

    We've ordered a 350g with the 8K axles and disk brakes after talking with the GD factory design people. We haven't seen it yet, GD said it went on line April 30. GD factory sales told me that the sticker would be changed from a GVWR of16800# to 18000# (the pin box now limits the trailer GVWR). We plan on putting our Polaris turbo S4 or our 32 High boy in the garage when we tow.
