    Nope not gonna be a dump trailer, the tounge folds up to double as a front stand for the box and save space and in my small garage, no space to waste, its being used to haul around my dirt bike at the moment.

    for axle placement I read up on the internet one site had a formula based on load capacity and tounge capacity, others said 60/40 of bed, and another was based on CG and another formula. I ran the numbers and they all came out similar so it was sorta a no brainer. Common sense too

    Default Tweekage

    Nice looking trailer. Ive built quite a few trailers in my days and the 60/40 theroy seems to be bullet proof. Youve done a fine job putting that trailer together, however i am wondering something... The axle (in picture 025) looks like its "tweeked" the wrong way? maybe its not, just looking out for ya.
