Setting up an expo trailer
So now that I have my Jeep pretty well ready to go, its time to start a new project....an expedition trailer. I have looked at lots of homebuilt and production built trailers and know pretty much what I want and don't want. I'm going to base mine roughly on an Adventure Trailers Chaser.
I have the skills and equipment to build the trailer. My question is for anyone who has a expo trailer is on your suspension, how is it set-up. More specifically, what width axle and weight/width springs did you use to get it to clear? I'm running 33" and want to design it to run up to 35" tires fully loaded.
I'd like to get some input from those who have already blazed this trail as I don't want to have to do and re-do based upon trial and error designing.
BTW, I will add that I plan to use a solid axle and double-eye leaf springs. No trailing arms with airbags or torsion axles. Keeping it simple.
Also, some input on the overall trailer length as well as the tounge length would be helpful. I think I know what I'm going to do, but I'm not set in stone on it. Thanks in advance.
