I'm getting a trailer made for my Catalina
states 4550 lbs. Although one club member
checked the actual weight and with standard equipment
got approx 5500 lbs.
I've decided to go with tandem 5500lbs leaf spring axles. I was considering trying torflex (torsion) but after doing some reading I'll just stick with leaf spring.
My questions is about steel
thickness. The guy that will build it for me recommended to go with 2x6 frame and 2x4 cross members. 1/8 thickness. Do you guys think 1/8 is enough or should i go with 3/16? He told me that 1/8 is perfectly sufficient (given size of the frame and cross members). Let me know whether it's worth paying for bit more steel
and go with 3/16 or maybe i should just stick with 1/8.
