    Good morning I just had a quick question for y'all. I have a cummins ram 3500 newer model with air bags on the rear axle. It has a Curt q25 Puck system fifth wheel in the bed would this be okay Hall in my Kaufman three car 50 foot wedge? I believe the curt has 25,000 lb weight braiding and six or seven thousand vertical. The Kaufman is 6k empty and about 18k loaded. I appreciate any advice as I'm new to the dually/hotshot type trucking.

    Approximately 25% of the trailer's weight is transferred to your drive axle. So about 4500 lbs on your 5th wheel and the rest rests on trailer axles.
