Trailer weight distribution

Trailer weight distribution

A fascinating short video on why weight distribution matters so much for trailers. This is the season where many boats will be trailered to their winter storage location. Well worth knowing what could happen with big outboards on the back.

    serious question, would it help if the wheels on the trailer weren't set in a strict plane? i know that's confusing but i don't know how to ask. if the trailer wheels could turn, to always be in line with the road, would that alleviate the problem?

    That's why you need 2 cars like in Fast5 to pull something heavy, like a bank vault. It's way too unstable with only 1 car.
