However, I do believe the forward-backward forces with the rack up would be less stress than the bounce with the rack down.
I think I'll try it and just be vigilant for stress cracks.
I probably won't end up doing this. Depends on how my Andersen Levelers work out. I'll be testing them this Tuesday! Woot Woot! First trip with the new trailer.
I strapped my aluminum step ladder to the rack, instead.
And, if anyone is interested, the Andersen Jack will NOT work with this trailer.
I had to adjust the brakes (too tight from stealership), and found that I needed about 4" more then what the jack would provide.
I guess the up side of having the camper in a low-rent storage field is that I could dig a hole under the tire to get the clearance I needed.
