You should see my pad, how it has expanded over the past 6 years with different lengths and widths due to different rv models. Looks like a mosaic!!

Hi: cpaharley2008... Not according to Reace. Besides I'm retired not in need of new tires...yet.
For the Fronty they will lower the shackles down and also the pin box... so the whole trailer will sit lower. Reace figures a 500lb. weight gain so I'm thinking that's still ok with 6100# tow cap. I'm sure there are some here that will disagree with that, but there should be no need to pull with a dually anything, unless you already own one. I already got my trailer tow extendable mirrors for the extra wide load. Alf

I thought when you said "extra wide load" you were referring to any weight gain due to retirement living in Florida!!!! I'm glad you are enjoying life.
