    tandem axle trailer

    I looked through some of the old threads. Couldn't find any pics of what I'm after. I'm looking at buying a tandem axle 2 place trailer. I do a 400 mile round trip several times a summer. I've got 2 f12x's on a 98 shorelander trailer and I know I'm about maxed out for weight. I imagine with a tandem and brakes on one axle it would be beautiful for towing. Any thoughts?

    Re: tandem axle trailer

    You may have a hard time finding a dual axle trailer that's made for JUST two sit downs as the two axles are usually there to facilitate more capacity that the two would be. I do love the way that mine tows due to the extra length and stability afforded by the dual axles. I don't have brakes on mine but it was an option.

    I have found a supplier in our area. A little pricey, buy nice. Tandem axle, brakes, aluminum wheels. I'd feel a lot better pulling that thing 200 miles at a time for sure.

    Dual axle trailers seem so much harder on tires, maybe a false equivalency tho, but I'm always putting tires on our dual axle trailer

    I've got a 6x14 v nose enclosed work trailer. I think the biggest thing with the tandem is weight distribution, proper hitch drop and tire rotation. When you back these things in and have to cut hard, the tires are just chewing. I would think for a pwc trailer it wouldn't be so bad, because you aren't cutting and correcting as much.

    Was thinking the same thing. Even worse, she's not even riding a ski.

    Yeah, I was trying to explain to my wife that I was just reading responses to my thread about a tandem trailer.
