rough ride?

If the axles were near flat in angle would there be a discernable amount of roughness in the ride?

If the torsion arm is parallel to the ground, when unloaded, then adding a payload will make the arms go upwards.

Everytime you then hit a bump, the trailer will bottom out, which in turn, causes damage to many things, including the frame, axle mounting plates, shell, plumbing, wiring, appliances, etc.
