    Wow, just the info I was looking for. I have a small 40″ x 48″ bed trailer (HF kit) I’ve “altered” to carry 4′ x 8′ sheets, et al. from the box store and taking refuse to the ‘landfill’ station. I lengthened the tongue for ease of use and stability.
    Storage issue is no problem on 3 acres.
    Thanks for this! It confirmed what I already ‘felt’ from 30+ years of pulling various trailers with various vehicles.
    Now, to build one with an Aluminum frame for the GoldWing…

    Unbelievably well explained. Almost to much information, but it was so clear and simplified I don’t care. I feel like a smarter person now.

    Fantastic article. The tire tread in the photo below “Confounding Effects” is a bit confusing, perhaps the orientation of the tire to the hitch could be explained. Otherwise, great article. Thank you.

      Interesting point about the tread. That’s the spare tire on the back of the tow vehicle 🙂 Sorry that wasn’t a little more clear.
