Hey TQ, Have a question for you....I am getting my 120 RF trailer/patio build going and need a little advice. The trailer is exactly 8' x 44"( this does not include 4 foot tongue ) with a cut-out in the rear center for the firebox, copy of your design, and I am stuck trying to decide where to place axle. I used the normal formula but it seemed like it should be further back. Since the fire box and cooking chamber are more toward the rear, should I place the axle further back than 4'8"??? I had thought you had placed one of yours further back than the norm. thanks again

Yes I would move axel back I step my cookers into the frame and when I get the desired tongue weight I mark it or tack it in place. The desired tongue weight for me is by feel I do not want to bust a gut picking the front end up . Tongue weight is way overrated in my opinion I have built many trailers both cookers and other custom rigs and all of pull great. Just make sure your tongue Nd frame is square with the axel . I desire to get it within 1/8" corner to corner but 1/4" ain't the end of the world either

I personally go about 38 inches from frame to end of trailer tongue it is all about preference

When your talking about 38 inches from frame to end of trailer tongue....are u talking about the tongue length? Probably dumb question but wanted to clarify. Also, are those 12 or 13" tires and whrrls? Thanks again or the help bud
