Pete is "currently shopping" and is considering a Scamp
13' trailer. My main point is that the higher the trailer is in comparison to the axle
and wheels, the less of a problem the triangulation of it being in the low spot (gutter) becomes. Not only must he think about dragging the bumper, but if he backs his in like I do mine he needs to think about dragging the hitch as well.
Relying on skid wheels alone might over time cause damage to his apron. Raising the body of the trailer (with a high lift axle
, or down angle arm) would take care of his problem.
