    I have a problem with the axel on my 6x8 trailer, in that it has been bent due to overloading before I bought it.

    This issue makes it a pain in the a$$ to back up, so I'm wondering if it can be fixed inexpensively or not.

    Anyone have a suggestion?

    Thanks for your help.

    (I know it's a small trailer, but it's all I have and could afford...)

    the axles dont appear to be too expensive 125 bucks or less for a 200lb axle. I did a google search for "how much for trailer axle"

    Thanks. There isn't any way that I can afford that right now or any time soon, but I didn't think of that. Perhaps I will be able to do that when things turn around.

    not trying to rag on you or anything.

    but what happened if something worse happened? Would you have the money to replace it?
