Got the weights.
I am probably a little heavier on the pin normally, right now I have my old trailer axles on the rack on the back of the trailer, 250 lbs. maybe.

With the removal of the axles from the back of the camper, your pin weight will increase.

Is your truck 2500 or 3500?

3k lb PW is DRW territory.
However, I think your problem is more the out of proportion of PW.
You're over 21%.
Should be more like 15%....which is close to what your SRW should handle.

The DRW will handle it better than your SRW, but it's still gonna have a slam factory to it.
A 14k 5er should be gravy. Yours is nose heavy. Where are the tanks?

Black & gray just ahead of the axles, 1 gray over the axles, fresh in the rear.
On the bright side he said mine pulled pretty good, he has a similar weight trailer, but he thinks this is heavier on the pin.
I think he put his bags up to 40lbs.

Maybe have your friend consider upping the airbags psi maybe to 60-80, maybe even load some supplies towards the rear.
I run mine usually between 70-80 with pin weight in the 2800 range with my Polaris ranger inside, total trailer weight loaded 13,500 lbs 32' toybox.
