    • Partially true.  Single axles come in 2 flavours, 2,000 lb and 3500 lb.  Pretty sure Signfan knows this.  Mfg's plate or sticker should tell you this, or Google it.  Also check tire ratings and inflation spec's.   Always check pressures outside in the ambient they will be used in.  That temp difference can be very significant in winter.  My Lightning hybrid came with load range E tires not C.  Can't buy replacements at the big box stores like CTC or Royal D.
    • Shouldn’t max out trailer. Normally single axles are good for 2000 pounds of pay load. My trailer guy said they build a safety factor of 20 percent in net  pay load number too. I think mines good for 2200 pounds with 20 percent or 2000 without.  800 pounds of total safety factor, if both my speed weighed 700 pounds. Always clean out some of the snow before loading. It’s not that hard to do. 
    • It will be very very close.    If it does fit, you will be taking the windshield off for sure.       My Backcountry 146 was pretty tight in an 11 ft Triton clam shell.    
    • Will a newer expedition with the 154" long track fit insude an 11' clamshell tilt and load trailer?  Also any issues with weight on these trailers with two expeditions?  At over 700 lbs dry I could see the total weight wet getting up near that 3500 lbs mark for the single axle by the time you add in fuel, snow and the weight of the trailer itself.
    • Go ahead just buy Quebec permit. That ensure your small town gets snowed in for days like 80’s.
