It was rejected for totally unrelated reasons. When it was done the first time it had the lighter axles on the other trailer and only a 2' beavertail. The guy couldn't use it because it was too high and the tail was too short and the ramps were to short so the bends were to sharp. He sold and serviced lawnmowers and riders wouldn't go over the bends. When I redid it I put on heavier axles. To do that I added a subframe to raise the trailer for tire clearance for the taller tires. I also extended the beavertail to 5' to get it a bit lower and make it more usefull.

Ah HA! Now it makes sense. Thanks for clarifying it Jon. BTW- What did you use for the leveling deck on the beavertail of the second trailer. Looks like a good idea.

I do that by continuing the crossmembers down the tail just like the deck. Then make a frame out of 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 square tube and weld a diamond plate to it. The top hinge is just a 1" shaft inside the top tube for a few inches on each side. The bottom is supported when up with a frame made out of the same tube that just tips forward underneath when its down. A couple of tabs on the support frame to keep it under the top and that's it. When up it's only for light stuff like hay and lumber and such. If you want to haul something heavy the deck needs to be down, that way there is no need for spring lifts and such.
