Growing pains!!!!!!!!!!!
Trailer looks well organized but way too full!!!!!
Next time get a tandem axle. You could be getting borderline on the load for a single axle.

Yes, it is very borderline on weight. It will do for now. I do wish it was a tandem axle.

Yes, the front cage was built by my father in law and I. We bought the angle iron and expanded metal locally and built it. He also made the backpack racks and stuff for me. It is a lot cheaper to make your own racks.

Yes, it is a perfect spot for them. My trailer is not very wide so their is plenty of room. Making these racks with the materials we have really only takes about 10 minutes. The one negetative is that they are heavy, adds a lot of weight to the trailer.

Let me know if you have any questions.
