    How can you measure this if you have no way of knowing what the weight of the trailer is?
    Unfortunately, I can not haul a trailer I am building to a scale, without permanently mounting the axle first.
    Thank you!

      Well, measuring or estimating weight is a pretty big part of finding weight proportions. You can do some tricks like setting up a lever system so you can weight portions using a bathroom scale. I does require more math and careful measurements. For instance, measuring the weight of one side of the trailer (then double it) can give a good estimate. Good luck.
