I just finished replacing the axles on a 1994 trailer for a couple of reasons.
- the trailing arms were pointed upward (made no difference on the load therein)
- interior rivets popping
- wheels did not drop very far when jacking the trailer up
- The trailer is 31' long and was wanting to drag on steep approaches.
It is likely I could have gotten a bit more life from them but I don't like to skip on maintenance. I saw the lack of a good suspension as potentially causing other problems down the road. I plan on keeping this trailer for awhile. The trailer has a nice "springy" feeling when you walk toward the back.
