Hi Erin

That would be great, Dont go out of your way though...

What would help would be the distance from the hook to the front axle and the overall lenght of your trailer, that should allow me to get them positioned within 10-15 cms or so.

Because i have a tendancy to over-engineer anything i fabricate, the trailer frame weighed in at 239kgs when we lifted it at the galvanizers! so there will be quite a leverage moment towards the front of the trailer....
The overall length of the trailer is 7.3m not counting the hitch.

Thanks

Simon

Simon, hopefully the attached pdf shows what you need. The dims if you can't read them are 1720mm, 1500mm and 5300mm. Let me know if you want any more.
The measurements are taken from the centre of the wheel hub, not the axle bolted to the trailer as that is some cms forward.
