    yeah single axle probably like a 6x4. i saw this picture of this guy who made mounts for all his equipment on the side rails so he could put all his stock on the base of the trailer id love to do that.

      I started out with a 6' X 12' single axle trailer. Ran that for 7 years, pulling it with a short bed 2wd pick up with a 4.3 V6. Then switched to a 7' X 14' enclosed trailer and 2500HD crewcab, for 2 years. Just now building a service truck with utility body and crane. Hope to have it ready by spring 2013. If I would have had a heavy duty truck to start out with, I probally would have built a skid, but have had no regrets. Just make it look clean, neat and professional. FIRST IMPRESSIONS!!!
