If you are going to haul much more than this, you’ll need a bigger trailer.
Last blog we discussed whether you want an open or an enclosed trailer. Today we want to discuss single or tandem axle.
Single axle trailers have just one load bearing axle. Trailers with single axles come with and without brakes. But as a general rule, most single axle open and enclosed trailers come without brakes.
Remember, that legally if you plan on hauling more than 3000 pounds then you have to have trailer brakes.
Anything heavier than 3000 pounds should be hauled on a dual axle trailer. Dual axle trailers use two load bearing axles and usually come equipped with either leaf springs or independent torsion bar suspensions.
Brakes are recommended for dual axle trailers. Dual axle trailers usually track more accurately than single axle trailers if you are going to be traveling over varying road surfaces.
