I have a 13.5' Lil Bigfoot and am located in Grants Pass, OR. If you are ever up this way, we could take it somewhere to get measurements of my axle if that would help.
Let me know if this would work for you.

Eve, amazing you should post this right now! At this moment (literally) we are getting a new axle installed. In a day or two, I plan to post the diagrams and order info the repair shop used to organize the new axle.


Do you have your original axle? What year is your Lil Bigfoot? How long have you had it, and how do you like it?


(Thank you so much for your generous offer! We actually purchased this little egg in Grants Pass!)

Almost seems like it would be easier to have a new trailer made where the frame was straight at the position the axles mount. Rather goofy not to have designed it that way in the first place. Seeing that photo makes me think they force fed their axle modification to fit onto a little boat trailer frame. Of course I have no real idea what their thinking was all about.

I'll be checking out a 13' in a few hours. If the starts are ailgned and the frame looks like the one in your photo, I see NO reason why I can't remove the bolts holding the frame, then add a 2" lift kit...

I think you are right. I think they found a bunch of boat trailers on sale and made the axle work. Then decided that was nutty and should never be done again.

Except, unfortunately, but the people who had to replace the axle in later years.
