More design factors.
The 3 in tube axle & its hubs, wheels can get pretty heavy. Auto engineers call it "unsprung weight". Don't have the exact numbers, but to ride decently, it has to be a small percentage of the total weight. Too much "unsprung" weight will make it bounce all over the road. Spring travel or deflection- even class 8 trucks with air suspension have only 4 or 5 inch deflection. Super off road trucks such as concrete mixers & dumps sometimes advertise 8 inches deflection. Your BBQ rig should be okay with 2 or 3 inch deflection.
How about the grill itself? Is it charcoal fired or propane? If propane the tank must be solidly fastened to the trailer. If no permanent guard around the valve the steel cap must be installed over the valve when in travel. Also the regulator/hose must be disconnected on portable tanks over 40# capacity. It's a safety thing. You don't want a flaming rocket in case of mishap & the valve,regulator gets knocked off. Except for a few applications such as 30# tanks on forklifts, RVs, etc, the tank must be mounted to ride upright.
Ready to be flamed.
