Debar39 I need your opinion since you build trailers. This is 6 1/2ft wide trailer,box is 6ft tall ,axle is rated at 2500lbs, tires are rated at 1535 lbs each. Should I switch the axle? This trailer started life as a pop up camper and I'm now turning into a enclosed trailer. I have a mobile home axle I can use for the swap which is rated at 5000lbs but would need to be shortened.Also I would put the wheels on the outside of the trailer with the mobile home axle but if you look close in the inside picture you can see were the springs are mounted for the orig axle. I would think mounting the mobile home axle so the wheels would be on the outside and moving the springs on the mobile home axle from their orig placement 12inches in where the orig axle bolts up toward the center of the trailer would be a no no. My other guess would maybe come across the trailers width with 4 x 4 x 1/4 angle welded to the trailers main frame and leave the mobile home springs orig placement which would line up under the outside edge of the trailer and mount it to the 4 x4 x 1/4 angle. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
