I don't have it now, but I did have a trailer about like yours. I don't think there is that much wrong with house trailer axles and tires. One thing I found out was that the house trailer tires were older than I thought. They could be 20 yrs old. Just because they came on a new trailer they are not new. They take those axles and tires back and pull another trailer and another. We finally bought some new 14.5 tires and our trouble was over.Vic

One thing to keep in mind is that house trailer axles do not have any suspensions on them, rough ride.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have one trailer with house trailer axles and have seen plenty more. All of them have leaf spring suspension just like any other trailer. The better ones have multi-leaf packs, and the others have just a single thick leaf spring.

I see. Around here, when folks talk about trailer axles especially in conjunction with shop made trailers, they hardly ever have suspensions. I was looking for a used GN just recently myself(in TX, OK, KS, NM) and all the shop made ones had no suspension mobile home axles under them: you can find them at private sales, auctions dirt cheap. I also have heard that those are intended for one time use only, to get the MH from point A to point B...but I cannot back that claim up. (Anyways, I did settle for a new GN.)
