That is a cool photo. I was wondering if the spokes on the trailer wheels were so much thicker to handle the weight, and if so I wonder why they didn't also do the rear wheels on the vehicle.

tongue weight of the trailer is 10% of the total trailer wieght

There is no way that trailer's tongue weight could get down to 10%, the wheels are too far to the rear.

that is how it is figured....look it up

It is also simple machine called a fulcrum and lever. The trailer axle is the fulcrum. Look it up.

With the wheels so far back on the trailer all of the load weight in the trailer is forward of the fulcrum and the tongue weight will be much greater than the ideal range of 9-15% of the trailer weight. There is no way in that trailer to balance the load over the axle to get the TW right.

My brain can beat up your brain. LOL smiling

I've read that before and understand. I don't think you're FOS or that you are wrong about that but I don't think you're understanding what I am pointing out about the particular situation illustrated in the picture; the weight distribution is going to be very different from a trailer that has the fulcrum (wheels/axle) located more toward the middle of the trailer. Anyway, it doesn't much matter, does it? Unless of course you are actually trying to load that trailer and get the tongue weight where you want it. It will make a big difference, that's all I'm saying.

yeah, if you load a trailer like a moron and put the heaviest things in the gooseneck it will be a helluva lot heavier tongue weight. but if you load it correctly, it will be 10% average. picture

The trailer in your photo and the one above are totally different. That one has the wheels fairly far towards the mid-point of the trailer and a full set of 4. In the above photo they are right at the back. I'm going 40% of the above trailer will be on the hitch easily... basic physics. The weight distribution of the top trailer will be very close to a 4 wheeled car, which is in the 50/50 range. There is no way to put much, if any, of the load behind the trailer axle to balance it.

the last pic was an example of a gooseneck horse trailer tandem axle with a 10% tongue weight, wheels slightly ahead of the rear. a single axle as pictured in the post will not be any different than that if loaded correct with the heaviest items over the rear axle in the trailer. it will however be extremely squirely on the road because of the weight shift yanking that little truck around, but it is not designed to carry very much to start with, so an argument about tongue weight is pretty useless in this case.

It's a mobile cake vendor, the heaviest thing in it is the man standing in it when they are selling them.
