If I end up with a heavier truck, I want a trailer with axles like yours Protouch.

Towmaster has a GN I've had my eyes on with those axles I'd love to have.

Ramp trailers are supposed to have legs under the ramps that keep that from happening.

Unless you happen to forget to put the truck back in gear after hooking up the trailer and when loading the truck and trailer roll forward allowing the ramps to fold up rendering the legs uselessnot that I would know anything about that
