You won’t have to jump on your loads if you have a trailer from Trailer Boss.
Occasionally individuals come in with trailers they have bought. Sometimes these trailers are simply used trailers others times they are trailers that were built by individuals with some building and welding skills.
You need to watch out for the axle. Sometimes individuals building a trailer will used mobile home axles. If the wheel size is 14-1/2”, then it is probably a mobile home axle and you should reconsidering buying said trailer.
There are several reasons for this. Mobile home axles are too stiff to use as a routine hauling vehicle. When you have trailer axles it is also difficult to find replacement wheels, tires or wheel bearings.
You also need to check to see if the axle is attached to some kind of suspension system and not merely welded to the frame. Another important item to check is the spindles. They need to be equipped with a grease fitting for bearing lubrication. Wheel bearings are one of the few maintenance items on a trailer that must be done periodically and grease fitting make that job much, much easier.
