If you are all wondering how to carry something on the back of your trailer, take some inspiration from this guy. I don't think it's something I would do but have to give him credit for trying. Not the best picture I could get but he added a third axle at the rear of the fifth wheel and has about a 6' platform.

Can you imagine how much those rear tires are going to skid on a turn? And the stress on the axle, tires, and wheels, especially if they load up the platform?

An even better solution is an Idaho Tote or swivel wheel trailer.

My thought was going over dips and putting lift on the rear. I know if I were backing down my steep driveway to my barn I'm pretty sure the two factory axles would be off the ground.
