Welcome to the forum!

The best way to answer your question is to crawl under the rig - the axle tubes will be stamped with their weight rating.

Even easier than crawling under rig is, look at the tag at the left front corner of your rig. Our sticker says 6750 lbs, because they had Goodyear Marathon load range E tires on the rig, but the Dexter axles are really 7,000 lbs rated. If the trailer came with the G614's, which was an option, the axle tag on the trailer would have been the full 7,000 lbs. Your rig may have axles rated 5,200 lbs or 6,000 lbs, as it was a light weight trailer.
