    This was a great read! (Overslung or Underslung Trailer Springs). I like the triangle diagrams. I’m a little unclear on Dynamic Forces… will go back and read it again. I agree…. Forums are just opinions, and often incorrect. Thanks for your help!

      I have noticed a few trailers recently including a local one used semi commercially that all use a drop axle flipped.
      At least 3 of 4 appear to use these trailers off the pavement aswell.
      1 of 4 trailers was obviously custom made and very light duty for carrying bicycles.

        Yes, you can do that for more center ground clearance, but it has a cost in strength and stability loss. I wouldn’t advise it. Hmmm, I wonder if that voids a warranty or something.
