7x14 single axle

I need some input from you guys.. I'm thinkIng of going the enclosed trailer route and was wondering what your thoughts are of the following
7x14 cargo single axle trailer
I will be carting a 52" z--- 36" walk behind and a 21" push - plus the endless amounts of handhelds/etc..

Do you think a single axle will be okay under all of the weight.??

7 X 14 enclosed single axle? All the 7 X 14's I have seen have been double axle. I think I would look for something with 2 axles. Someone more technical may have a better answer as to why. Just seems to me to be a pretty trailer for single axle.

Bad idea. You'll bend the **** out of that axle with that much weight.

Do it right and get a tandem axle, that way you've got the axle to carry the weight, and you have brakes.

14' singles look goofy and the load must be move evenly balanced to prevent fish tailing. Tandem is the way to go.
