Importance of Weight Distribution

A fascinating short video on why weight distribution matters so much for trailers.

People new to toy haulers should take note. My trailer behaves one way empty, but when loaded with 1300 pounds of quads in the rear of the trailer, is tail heavy. Without some balancing of the trailer you could quickly find out what driving that mustang is like!😳
