Lot of stress on the angle where the rails meet the hitch, imagine you had that plated from the beginning. Not much room for sharp corners on that 1st one either.

2nd one sure has a wide spread on the axle. Makes a good ride, but poor for maneuvering tight.

LOL I'm surprised you saw that problem with the v. I had forgotten about that and it is not what the post is about,but you are correct I had a terrible time with that. It was the first time I did a trailer with that on it and I had no idea what an engineering nightmare that would be. I fixed it several times only to have it re-break again almost right away. I ended up just cutting the upper v loose from the tongue and letting ride loose on there, after that I had no more issues. Great catch!! Did you say you were an engineer?

Why did he want the tongue decked? Something stowed up there?

yes, there is a hinged door in that and the bottom of the tongue is plated.

Nope, no engineer, just used farm machinery for a few decades that come from the engineers. ;)
