Has anyone built their frame and tear, stocked it "ready to roll" and then adjusted the axel forward and rearward to acheive the desired tongue weight? Is that even a feasible approach?
I'm just wondering if finding the near perfect spot after construction and welding it in that position would be a more sensible approach.
finding the proper placement actually required moving the axel so far forward it impeded the door?

Wouldn't it be better to build the body first then you will know weight distrabution and where the trailer needs more support ?
