ive got both styles leaf springs on my haulers and torsion on a horse trailer, [ 4 horse gooseneck], they ride ok loaded but the torsion seems a little stiff when running empty, it may be just a light trailer though, my biggest concern would be breaking something and not finding parts when on the road,, a trailer is something to carefully consider when purchasing do it right and you'll have it for as long as you care to pull it if you maintain it, get it wrong, and i did a couple times, and you wind up with a miserable experience, and a trailer that wont do what you wanted it for and then you either change to make the trailer work or sell it, lose money selling it, and lose more money when you buy another that will do the job, consider all present and future likely needs for it, as well as what you have for a power unit, you may need to upgrade the power unit to a larger truck if you need more chassis to run leagle, as seen in other posts, the days of a 1 ton pickup dragging 20 grand of weight behind it is rapidly coming to a close, your engine may pull the load, but the whole rest of the truck is still a 1 ton pickup, thats why they make medium duty trucks , the whole truck must be matched to its job to be safe,and to last and give a long service life, you not only got to pull the load you have to stop it too as well as handle the weight, i cant be the only man who has seen a 1 ton with the cab and the bed touching due to hooking too big of a load,or carrying too much weight, and tweaking the trucks frame , careful planing means you have to drop the money only once to get what you need or will need in the future
