Assuming the trailer is adequately rated, what is the issue?

when i was looking for the 6.5 i would say most were on singles, though did come across some on twins. Personally I wanted a twin axle trailer - but having had to replace all the brakes etc on this trailer when I got her am glad only had a single axle to deal with!!!
So far i find no issues with trailing her on the single.

My 6.5 is on a single axle trailer. That is what I wanted. Two reasons, as mentioned easier and more importantly cheaper to overhaul bearings and brakes, and much easier to manoeuvre in tight spaces when trying to man handle the beast!
The only down side that I have found is that it is impossible with my 220 litre fuel tank mounted towards the forward part of the boat to get the trailer nose weight acceptable between full tank and close to empty tank.
Sorry for the thread drift

My wife has had every modal since 1986, she started off with a short wheel base 2.6 petrol and now she has an 2006 3.2 DID.
She would not have any other car, she loves them to bits. They are great at towing I don't even know my boat is on the back. Has anyone who has the 3.2 DID auto got a sticker on the drivers door saying only tow in 4 wheel drive? I can only assume it is to do with the traction control. Does anyone know different?
Thanks, Keith.

our Revenger 715 is on a single axle, trailer rated at 1800kg, biggest issue is that tyres don't help with suspension, would have better on twin axle, live n learn

As Tarbh just said , it's the same for manual 3.2 as well . I've had a 54 plate from new . I believe I was told when I bought it that it was to " prevent different oil temperatures blowing seals ".
