and thanks for the link, cameron. nice toaster!
The single axle is ok, but a tandem offers much greater payload capacity, as well as safety.
No, you normally cannot feel a tire going soft. A "blowout" especially on a single axle trailer, can easily cause a loss of control accident, unless you have a "HUGE" tow vehicle, like a semi-truck.
Which way to go, for you???
You must start with drawings, placing each and every piece of equipment you wish to have, in it's place, at least for starters.
That will basically dictate what you should and must do.
Only you know what all you want the trailer to carry, and then have it reviewed by someone that can create your project.
Opinions are always great, but facts are far more reliable.
Which trailer you chose, is very important as Action pointed out.
