The load from the spring perches need to directly transfer into the main beams...I am concerned by the first pictures...

After looking at other aluminum Trailers Design this will not be a problem
Mine is Way overkill Compare to the ones you buy From like EBY
Imagine having 30"+ of axle on each side of the frame that is base in the center. that narrowed you would bend the axles very easily

Very nice trailer build! I feel your pain on the 16" wheels, but at least you can still get heavy ply 16" that don't kill the wallet when you have to buy them. Haha

Dang, 2600! How big are the axles again? Is that made from a trailer that's made for maxing out GCWR on a tractor?
