So you're saying it actually turns too far? I can't quite wrap my mind around that concept, it seems like more would almost always be better.

Nope. It's the pivot for the axle to angle for holes/bumps. I left 1" clearance for it to pivot, but 1/2" would have been plenty. Too much weight on a front corner pulls the opposite rear wheel way up in the air. Look at the pic and the clearance just above the center bolt in the axle.

Oh ok, I gotcha now. The pic is showing up about the size of a postage stamp on my phone so I was having trouble seeing/interpreting what you meant but it all makes sense now.

One thing I found that I want to change is the amount of pivot I left in the front axle. It is too much, only needs about half.


Just weld some additional stops to the frame just above the axle.

Kenny, can you take some pictures of the steering on your trailer?

 

I can't tell how it is setup and I would like to copy your design.


  • KennyP and trowel have said thanks
