Here's a sketch of what I made. BTW, I took the measurements from one at a trailer parts dealer.

Pictures of where to place would be Great. I am still new to this and the last thing I want is a bent frame.
Here is how I do it one jack in the back and one in the front of the front axle. This picture is not my trailer but shows two in the back. I usually do one side of the trailer at a time

Big difference, that trailer has a structural I beam, not a flimsy fabricated one like the lite wt trailers have.
