Default Need to replace axles on my loadmaster trailer

Glad to see that there is a trailer rep on this site to help out with all the stuff we do to our boats, and trailers. I have a 98' 27' Contender on a 2001 Loadmaster tandem axle trailer VIN# 4YPAB28271T021B02 and I need to replace both spring type axles. I also want to go with torsion style and not have to worry about springs, shacks, yokes rusting. My frame is 72" on center and about 86" hub face to hub face. Would I need the 5200 lb rated axles. A trailer place local here in SD quoted me for 3750 lb rated axles.....suspect.

My approx breakdown on weight:
Boat ------ 4950 lbs
2x engines ------- 1000 lbs
Fuel 249 gallons ------ 1750 lbs
Gear, t-top, anchor etc ------ 1000 lbs
-----------
8700 lbs
I think this is about right

Would love to talk to someone or online is fine to, just want to get my ducks in a row.
Thanks for your time hope to hear from you soon.

Im second guessing myself on going with torsion axles. Is it worth the added cost and hassle?

Chris thanks for the heads up on not being able to help me to get my axles replaced. I have already contacted Loadmaster direct last week and got a quote for the parts just thought I would possibly give the business to a THT member. Thanks anyway and glad you guys are busy.

We have a vast selection of 3500# axles in both leaf spring and torsion, to fit most applications. For the heavier 5.2k-7k our selection is limited to mostly OEM, not many universal offerings except for round tube Dexter painted axles. We can special order torsion axles for Loadmaster through Tie Down Engineering, but the last time I checked they were less expensive to but directly from Loadmaster. We deal with a lot of trailer manufacturers, but unfortunately Loadmaster isn't one of them at this time.

Thanks,
Chris
