skinnylee, Given the design of the camper axle, You're looking at re-building the axle assembly basically from scratch. A thought might be(with help from a friendly welding shop)removing the present axles, and designing a swing-arm assembly that'll support the weight you want to carry. A good shop should have no trouble doing this. With any luck, the new axle will bolt in place of the old one. Look at some of the designs out on the lake, that should give you a direction you might want to go. I hope this helps, Phred52

Keep in mind that if you put the drop axles on that you can only have a total width of 8'6". Depending on the width of the camper, you might have to fabricate it so the axles go up inside the house.
