I can't help you with the cherokee lite 26K but most are 8 feet wide however newer units are going to a width of 102 inches 8'6" so make it wider than needed.

thats not the axle width! thats the whole trailer width? correct?
I am looking for the width from center of tire on the left to the center of the right wheel, so I can make a pad for the wheels to set on when its at home! thanks

take that 8'6 and thats how far those 2 pads should be from outside to outside. make the pads 1 foot wide and you should be safe even at 8'8" apart

Just make it big... easier to hit when your backing up :-)

Thanks for the help! The outside of the trailer is only 8 feet and the wheels are under that!

So make it only 7.5' wide as you must be an expert at backing the thing up!

We're trying to be helpful...doesn't look like it's worth the effort!

Numbers, I like others that have responded to your question fail to see the reason for knowing exactly the axle width if you already know your trailer is 8'. If you have the yard space why not make the pad 8'6" or 9' wide that way you may have an easier time putting the TT on it. Plus it will give you a solid area to walk around the TT.

PS. If what you are trying to do is build two separate thin concrete pads for just the wheels to sit on then we all missed the question.
