My experience was short and not so sweet. I bought a mobile home in 1979. I knew I wouldn't be moving the thing any time soon so I took the opportunity to pull a couple of the axles and built a trailer. It was a single axle, I used the springs as well. Everything looked pretty good until I started using the thing. I never could get the tires "balanced" where they didn't bounce all over the place. Then I found out that the bearings in these things are substandard at best. About all it was good for was hauling junk at slow speeds. I persisted and kept using it for a few years. After several failures of the tires, and just plain getting tired of being able to see air under the tread over 40mph I pulled the axle and built one, using the front hubs off an old pickup I had scrapped out. Never again. The saying proved to be true: Sometimes you do get what you pay for....

The single axle and the mobile home springs were the prob, the axle is fine but springs are way way too stiff for a single axle trailer
