The 17's have leaf springs and ours has lots of clearance even with the large offset on the axle
. Know of a local 17' boler
is so low I wonder if it has much suspension left.
I transgress wanted to say brakes
are a good idea to add; if you are fixing your suspension anyway; If you travel a lot you may need them as rules differ from area to area depending on the tow vehicle size.
Still they may not be required as your trailer is so small and light
personally feel after having them you will likely not want to be without electric brakes
in the future. The expense is well worth the peace of mind.
Extra cost for both of the brake units, deep cycle battery
if you do not have one and wiring changes that include a controller.
