Mike I hate to keep bugging you but I'm to the point of welding the spring hangers to the frame. And I'm looking at the photos of the frame and it looks like you set the axle at 60%'back
If I'm right then from my rough calculations then I should end up with about 250 to 300 lbs. of tongue weight. And did you come up with a weight for the whole trailer. If it's around 1,500 lbs. then that would work for me. Thanks for your time Billy

Aha, I found this... hope it helps... let me know if you need anything else...

51 inches from the rear of the chassis to the center of the wheel...


The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...
