Yeah, I guess it's silly to do all that rearranging. We'd like to go up the Alcan highway to Alaska next summer, so underbody clearance will be important. I don't actually know how much tongue weight the trailer has now, nor am I quite sure what our half-ton pickup will handle in that regard. Maybe the better route is to beef up the rear shocks and/or springs.
I do want to move the gas cylinder mount farther back. If I make a dual battery holder like yours, D-mo, maybe I can squnch it a bit farther back than it currently is and then shift the cylinder bracket.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
