    That looks heavy. Did you put any channel or anythingon the back side to keep it from bowing

      No that is why I angle the gusset inward to prevent bowing.He is towing a chipper not a15ton excavator.

        I had the same question, I normally run a stiff back also because thats where they fail, unfortunately it was hard to see if the gussets were on an angle from the picture.

        I do agree, if he was a dirt digger hauling a 24 ton trailer then I would say you need to beef it up, but for hauling a 10,000 lb chipper that should be plenty, especially since you angled the gussets in.

        In a worst case scenario all that would happen is it would start to bend if he over loaded it.

        Nice job.
