Recommended Axles For Low Deck Height On Trailer Build


Looking to build a motorcycle trailer for a friend and he wants a really low deck height. I seen axles around but didnt see any on your site? Do you carry any?


Expert Reply:

We do carry axles and I've linked the page to all of your options. For a low deck height, I recommend using the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Drop Spindle - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2KHDS05 or the 3,500 lb 4 inch drop spindles with drum brakes # ASR2KHDS05.

The 4 inch drop will give you a lower deck height than a standard axle and will also give you increased ground clearance by using the integrated suspension and smaller crossbar of 2 inches square if it is even needed at all. This all depends on the location of cross braces in your frame. Depending on how many bikes you want to carry, these axles can be used for tandem applications as well.

If you want further recommendations from a fellow rider, let me know.
