My current trailer (Escape 17
has 2 6vs on the bumper. Weight distribution seems fine except when I put 2 bikes back there too. Then I load up the front storage box with a bit more weight.
Thanks for reminding me about the bikes. I have a rear bike rack on the back bumper.
I am upgrading the propane
tanks from 2/20lb to 2/30lb but it will not make the difference up.
I run two 6v batteries tied together and they are lead.
The overall idea was to have them on a pull out tray street side right behind the axel. The door would be vented and they would be in cases in a compartment
Major concerns I see is Wt. this is right in frount of the black tank that is only used for gray watter. We have a portapotty.
Bikes on the rear hitch
I do have a blue ox hitch with sway but I would rather the trailer be loaded right and not depend on the hitch all the time to "fix things".
I do not want to put them under the frount bench dining table as it is used for sleeping and I don't like the idea of my head over a battery.
