i agree those 2 little rectangle tubes arent enough the side to side vibrations/wiggle will snap welds eventually, i would weld 2 uprights from frame to mid way up pipe on the back to reinforce and maybe the front also.
as for the double axle i didnt see it either in pics i must have missed it but u will prob need it, as long as your using a decent truck to pull you wont need brakes till 3000 lbs as long as your right foot behaves and you know how to drive with a trailer
I love build threads! keep going its looking great!
charbroil offset, custom trailer pit, 46" vermont castings gasser, 18" kettle, big poppa smokers engineered drum kit smoker than was never picked up = NEW TOY! :becky: and last but not least: a never ending 20' comp trailer project:doh:
