I guess it depends on the price of the axles. We don't load heavy or do long trips and the trailer fits our needs.
Mostly Rv parks and will try to move some of the stuff forward.
I'm curious about lowering the front axle a bit to take more of the load with the trailer sitting as is.
I agree, an axle upgrade is the better approach, side bonus is you can sell the old axles basically in pristine condition.
I would not lower the nose of the trailer any further if I was you, the recommended minimum clearance is 6", better 8".
