Yes...when I was new I put 4 oaks with the rootballs all at the tonge end of the trailer. Driving down the road over bumps, I noticed an alarming amount of flexibility over bumps! Mine was a 16ft double axel.

Funny thing was to get it back home i had to C-clamp the tongue to the frame..it was really jank

I had a V tongue..and it wasnt strong enough...you have to push it sometimes. Make sure you add extra support.
