Now I'm sure somewhere on this Forum there are pictures, and I've checked out Andy's site; however, I would just like to see a classic trailer with "yes" and "no" on the axel pictures, and "jack it up here" on the other pictures. My 78 and 76 ride very high up on the wheels and I can pull them with a coke can on the counter that will never move, but both are old and only pulled a few times a year.
You can tell that our 63' Safari needed axle replacement by how much of the tire sidewall is visible, none. [Sorry this was the best photo I could find]
The other photo shows where I place the jack stands for winter storage, I use the vertical axle plates as jack points.
Hope this helps.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
