Just spitballin' here, but anyone ever tried airbags? Raise whole trailer for slow offroad travel, and lower back down for high speed highway travel. From what I have seen on offroad vehicles 3 to 6 inch raise is pretty easy.

Hi Alex.

When I had my axle built, I had it with removable arms that can be clocked and brakes. The brakes necessitated a heavier duty axle that would have been too much for the light trailer. Turns out they can put in shorter rubber rods into the joint that effectively derates the axle so it works better for a light trailer.

Hope that helps.

Colin
