    Upgrade axles on enclosed trailer?

    Thinking about selling my 7x14 7k enclosed and getting something like an 8x20. Problem is that a lot of them still use 3500lb axles. How much different are the frame on a typical 7k enclosed vs a 10k? I figured if I can get one cheap enough I'd just go to 7k axles with 16s.

    Trailer brakes make a pulsating thumping noise

    Title pretty much says it all. I have a utility trailer with tandem 3,500 Dexter axles and if the trailer is plugged into the truck there is an audible “thump, thump, thump” noise coming from the brakes. The noise starts as soon I make the connection. The brakes appear to otherwise work...

    Can I run the 8 on 6.5 GM aluminum truck wheels on trailer axles? Will I need to bore out the wheel hub? Is the offset close enough?

  8. Trailer tire brands and choices

    I have a typical 7x16 trailer I bought from a good buddy. The trailer has the typical 205/75/15 tires that these things come with. I have never had a tire issue until the last trip. I think it was a pothole that got it. So the tires are a load range C which puts the tire right at the max...

    4 Season Trailer

    Picked up a 2024 all aluminum Snopro trailer. It's a hybrid snowmobile trailer custom ordered with extra height with idea being it would fit a SxS if purchased eventually and that we can use it as a camper in the warm season. Camping will be "modular" so that it can be returned to a snowmobile...
