First off I"ll say what are you hauling. Match your trailer needs to your loads. There are a lot of good trailers out there and alot have great features. In my case I needed a trailer that would handle wide and heavy loads. I chose a Donahue made in Durham ks. 29" (24" deck + 5" dovetail) The trailer bed expands from 8.5" to 12.5" hydraulicly. Triple 7000lb tortion axles with brakes on all axles and 14 ply tires. The same hydraulic control also runs the hydraulic jack (landing gear) Really great when you need to detach when loaded. I pull it with a Ford F-350 4x4 single rear 14 ply tires with 7.3 and auto. It handles the weight fine. This is NOT a cheap trailer or a light weight hauler. But will be around long after I"m gone.

I like the torsion axles on my tandem trailer but a while ago someone posted a link that torsion axles shouldn't be used on a triple axle trailer.

I wouldn't know why. mine is 14 years old now and never a problem. still carries weight fine and side stress doesn't show. And I have cranked mine hard several times with a load. I have seen triple axle with spring carriers bent from side stress.
