Leveling Trailer Side to Side


Hello, I have a 16 cargo trailer that I use to haul tools for remodeling. I have shelving built along one side of the trailer that causes that side to about 1.5. What can I install to balance it out?

We don't offer anything that would be designed to 'even out' the side to side weight distribution. Attempting to do so wouldn't be a safe idea anyway, as the trailer wouldn't handle correctly when unloaded in that condition.

What I'd recommend you do is place some heavy items on the other side of the trailer to even out the load in a side-to-side orientation. It's crucial that the side to side weight bias of a trailer be as close to equal as possible, otherwise you'll have tire and suspension wear problems.
