I think there would be a problem clearing the brake drums unless you used the size wheel that your trailer came with.
The 12" rims cleared the brake drums just fine, although I'll have to look again to see how much. Stock rims on my 91S13 are 13".

I like the plywood idea, however, being less expensive than two 12" wheels.

I think it's worth a patent request... or some way to prove it's yours before it gets stolen.

Hi: What about using a pair of doughnut spares from the wreckers that are the appropriate bolt pattern. Would that lower the trailer enough to clear the door height??? Just " thinking outside of the Box"
Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie

Aren't doughnut spares the same diameter as the wheel/tire they are replacing? They are only narrower.

But looking at your drawings, I would try to avoid notching the board. Maybe use a 2x6 or 2x8 etc. so that the clearance for the hub would be contained IN the board as close to the center as possible because of stress considerations.

BTW, I am dealing with the learning curve of the graphics program. It appears to be simpler than TurboCAD, but still not real easy.
