One thought that comes to mind is weight
. Unless you are replacing the axle
- and assuming it is original - your early Boler axle
is probably rated at 1200#. As we were discussing in another thread, that's actually "worth" more than you'd think on an 1100# (plus contents) trailer, because you don't have to count un-sprung weight
, but it's still something to consider. I don't know how much the flooring would weight
PS: I'm really looking forward to following along on your restoration.
