BUT.....Why move things back if the nose weight is right? You realize that you could make the trailer unstable on the road by having a nose weight that is too light.
Oh yeah, not to worry mate. I've messed about with normal trailers for years. I've already moved the post and boat back on the trailer to get the nose weight right.
The bow is far to close to the hitch, when I'm putting the boat into the garden I have to jackknife it abit and the bow ends up touching the back of the van. Also want to set the trailer up so the transom is sitting lower on the trailer.
Believe me I could go on and on ...
And like I say, I have a deserted road and slipway to test things out.
