I've never seen that brand before. Would be nice to see some better pics of the tongue and side rail, they look a little light in those pics. If they are heavy enough material they should be ok. 2-3,500 lb axles? That looks a lot like what is sold around me called Alumaline. They were a pretty good trailer and they had their own extrusions for the sides and deck. Made a light but strong trailer. How long is that one? Looks close to 20'. Too bad your not closer to Mn. I could build you a great car hauler type.

Evening Jon,
Your right ,the 8220 is a 20 footer ,with a 2/5/16 coupler, twin 3500#axles 14"or 15" wheels.Its a shame they have rubber torsion axles. Kind of partial to leaf springs. SSI out of South Carolina puts a nice one but not aluminum. Sorry I could not get a better pic of the coupler, Chuck

Most who don't do a lot of off road work like hauling bales prefer the torflex once they try them. The only disadvantage is no equalizing, but they are made to handle 2x the weight for short times like driving through a ditch. The advantages are better ride and no maint. on the suspension. They also are less likely to bend or get out of alignment. They also help if your tow vehicle is a little light for the job since they don't equalize the load doesn't transfer to the truck so much, but still you don't get the sway problems from having the load too far back either. Not trying to change your mind, just offering some info from my experience.

And you don't need a jack to change a tire, just a chunk or 2 of 2X6.

Even with light axles I'd prefer a tall/skinny 16 inch tire- they turn fewer times to go the same distance- and so do the bearings.
