I agree with whalebus anything bigger than 12' and I'd go double axel. That and any more than 3 quads plus the weight of the trailer and your pushing the 3500lb axel rating.
LOL, Thats why I used a 6000lb axle.. Here are the dimensions of the xp and its the largest
Length: 83.25 in
Width: 47.6 in

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, good call on that one, then how far back from center are you gonna go with it to get good balance...

Thatis exactly how many trailer makers told me to do my axle but rather a 10% front load for empty trailer( or the 60/40 split) same thing. go for it and have fun. fromthe pics it looks like you have a good trailer and really good paint so far.

Looks nice. I prefer my side load trailer vs a back load. Made to haul 3 large units. Easy to load and unload and great to pull.

Trailer

I own a welding business on the side from the fire dept. When building a trailer you have to decide how many bike you want to haul and how much money you want to spend. I built my self a 20 ft. trailer. I made it an 8' wide flat bed with the wheels under the deck. This allows for easy side loading, load on one side, unload off the other. The bikes are easy access. Always try and keep the load over the axles and off the tongue as much as possible, your truck will work less and burn less fuel. I have 16" stake body sides varying in length, one set is 8' long and those double as the loading ramps. I've welded 1" tabs where the ramps go to prevent the ramps from sliding off the deck of the trailer while loading. I mounted two underslung 6' aluminum boxes on either side for straps and lubricants and fuel. I have two spare tires mounted under the deck as well as racks for coolers and other gear. All this is toward the center and rear of the trailer to cut down on tongue weight. There's a ramp gate on the rear, for when I'm only loading a couple of bikes. I can haul five bikes sideways if need be. I've got two 5000 lb axles on it with load range E tires. I've made it as self contained as possible so that there is no loading and unloading of the bikes and equipment going and coming. The bikes only have to come off for cleaning and all my gear stays stored on the trailer. I've thought about mounting a fuel tank and pump on it but I abandoned that idea, fuel cans are easier to haul to the store to refill. To build this trailer would be ridiculously expensive. I did it over time with materials I had left over from welding jobs. I posted this so that maybe you could use some of my ideas. What I like most is all of the storage I've been able to use under the trailer deck and the ease of loading. I hope this was helpful.

PK_FIREMAN:

Do you have any pictures of this?? Sounds like an awesome trailer, and having pics would really assist in the "getting ideas" department.
