    Trailing Axle Placement

    To properly set the axles use the manufactures recomendations. They will say were to put the axles! Fell free to look at any manufacture. Many manufactures exist.

    If it is just going to be a general purpose trailer, then I would stick with the 60/40 rule of thumb. In the case of tandem axles, they would be centered over that point. It's all about weight distribution between the axles and tow vehicle. Too far back and it will over load your truck. Too short and it will be hard to maneuver and will be unstable on the highway. If a trailer sways a lot at speed that is usually a sign that the cg is too far back. SSS
