Re: RC: Horse Trailer
Where did you get the idea the heavier axle would injure your horse? In
fact, the weaker axle will have a tendency to bottom out against the frame,
bending the axle, and becoming a solid jolt instead of a springy jolt. Don't
forget the trailer weight is also figured in the load. Brakes are also sized
to the axle weight rating, so the 5000 would have bigger brakes. In our
experience rebuilding trailers, the WW makes a good sound trailer, although
their finish work can be a little rough. (Don't clean welds, take a good
look at the paint job, etc.). All things considered we'd take the WW over
