Yup, height affects fuel mileage and drive-ability.to keep the overall height down as well i suppose.
Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. Depends on if it ever goes off the paved roads. We could drag the rear getting into the farm if our trailer had dropped axles.Drop axles on my enclosed. Hell of a lot better than no drop axle.
Torsion axels are a must with enclosed. Like you said, rides and pulls nice and smooth.ours have torsion springs, very nice ride too
O she goes on plenty of really rough farm roads and out at my shop theres a nice drop off from the parking lot to the dump area and Ive never had any problems. Now watch, Im gonna go hit it on something now that i mentioned it :hammerhead: My neighbor has a regular height enclosed trailer same as mine, looks goofy as hell sitting still and going down the road!Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. Depends on if it ever goes off the paved roads. We could drag the rear getting into the farm if our trailer had dropped axles.
What causes the drop axle to bend? Just because its a drop axle....?Drop axles blow. I have an enclosed trailer that is 4 years old and replaced both axles 2 years ago. Now 2 years later they need replaced again. They bend which in turn causes the tires to wear unevenly. Last time I had to replace an axle, I was going through a tire in about 9 days. A brand new tire worn on the inside so bad as to cause a blow out.
Local trailer place said I could put straight axles on it, but I don't think I want the extra ride height. It's 8.5 x 16 with a 6' 6" inside, so it's already a big trailer.
I guess the drop axles are a necessary evil if you want an enclosed trailer.
Don't forget to grease your axles on any trailer!!!!! It's amazing what kind of damage a dollars worth of grease can prevent....
Just my $0.02
