Cherokee

This grey wolf 29te 2017 trailer is 36.5' long and it rides low and bottoms out a lot. I have had a couple of spots where the chains dragged on the front and the back end bottomed out. When it is sitting level, there is only 13"-14" of clearance from the frame to the ground. It is a big enough of a problem that it actually broke the bracket on the back end of the trailer (see attached picture). To me, the axles appears to be undersized for the trailer. This is most probably why the trailer rides very low and bottoms out a lot. Looking at the info on the placard (image attached), the gvwr is 7,837lbs, but each axle is only rated for 3,500 lb. Based on these numbers, it appears to me that the manufacturer used an undersized axle for the weight of the trailer, and if you saw the trailer, I think that you would agree. Looking at the axle, springs, and frame while the trailer is hooked up for towing, the frame is just an inch or two above the axle. Additionally, there is only 2.5 inches of clearance between the tire and the wheel well. And this is with the trailer dry (no water, empty black and grey tanks, etc). I am using a Ram 1500 to tow it and am setup with the weight distribution hitch and the trailer is level when I tow it.
