    I can't really tell from the pictures but it looks like you are gonna have some ground clearance issues with that trailer. It appears to me that you will bottom out going up and down driveway aprons and various road grades at intersections. Did you use spring axles or tor-flex axles on your build? You may have to raise the deck height and maybe dove tail the rear a little. Also, with a trailer of that length, you may have to consider putting a set of rollers under the tail end of the trailer to keep it from bottoming out and getting stuck, whether you leave it at this height or if you end up dove tailing it.
    If necessity is the Mother of Invention, I must be the Father of Desperation!

      It's about 12" off the ground, it doesnt look it, but to put it in perspective, My tires on the SS are about 13.5" wide. I checked, and when I go out the drive, it doesnt hit, misses by 4 inches.

      I was going to dovetail it, then decided against it. They are spring axles, 7,000 lb.

      I do like the roller Idea though.

            Two 7,000 lb Axles, 14,000 total.

            My camaro's weigh 3100 and 3400 lbs. so 6500 lbs total.

            I dont have a duramax, it's a 6.0L Gas 5 speed manual. I'll be just over my towing limit by 400-500 lbs, thats why im looking for a Duramax Crewcab Longbed dually, manual trans of coarse.
