How far did he make it? And did it break?
He may be doing better than the engineers at most RV manufacturers. [emoticon]

The no breaks is a big the rest not so much! Wonder if the ratchet straps were held together with duct tape, or just succeed the excess??

Straps held together with duct tape?? this is why people who know nothing shouldn't write about things. After they put it on the other trailer you still have the same setup on a newer trailer with brakes, maybe a little better.

At least he knew enough about weight to add a tag axle.

On another forum I am listening to people talk about how the trailer is fine and government over reach is the real problem. I don't think so.

You need to stop hanging out in forums full of crazy people! Nothing good will come of it . . .
