    I Just competed my frame build as far as tack welding goes, everything is fabricated and in place and I am waiting on a certified welder to come finish the work. I went with 1/8 metal for everything including outriggers and I reused the A - frame which is 1/4 inch thick. I estimate the frame weight to be between 1500 and 1000 pounds when I brought the old frame in for scrap it was 500 pounds (but who knows how accurate that is) without the hitch. I am in need of new axles but I do not want to over or under shoot the weight. What pound of axles are you running? The originals where 3,200 and I was thinking of going with 4,500 pound axles. My build plan will also probably add more weight then what was originally in the AS.

    Yes- I did move the holding tanks and I will have 45 gallons of grey and 30 of black which are located over the axles. going from rear bath to center bath.

    Thank you for your response.

    Hey, I saw your trailer build on a thread and would like to know more info about it if you have any! what thickness of metal did you use for the main rails? I am about to build one with 5x2 tubing but don't want to over do it to much. Your trailer looks great by the way.
