I am building, a drop down trailer. But I am having trouble figuring out where to put the wheels. the length will be 14' with another 3'Vfront. material with out wheel assembly will run 550.00...... Buddy has a shop, with room for my project. THIS WILL HAPPEN! (I have to say it like that, I've put it off for to long now!!!) I am a motivated ice fisher! And my kids aren't getting any smaller....... Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

I am not an expert but this is what I did when I built mine.

I built the frame then took a 2x4 and put it underneth and moved it until the frame balanced on the 2X4. I marked where the 2X4 hit on the frame and that is where I put the wheels. You do not need to worry about the pivit point is (I am asuming this is a drop down) just where the wheels are.

Mine balances to well and has almost no tounge weight. If I was to do it over I would have more tounge weight as it bounces all over going down the road.

Hope that helps.
