Found a tripe axle trailer with axles on spring ride instead of walking beam and stub axles . I like these trailers my old trailer is shot I can’t keep tires on it they guy I traded has tandem axles and he wants to put them under my old trailer when he gets it . I’ve made a lot of money with this old trailer and I’m glad I could work a trade on it . My cousin has a tri axle just like what I’m trading for and I really like the design

The old trailer .



The other triple axle I have used



The new used trailer

I've heard that it's hard to keep tires on a triaxle in general, loaded turns being extremely harsh.

You've probably got a plan for that, though.

Never had a problem with it . I guess if you are jack knifing all
the time it could be hard on tires . That tri axle ten times
easier on tires than the red trailer in the last 25 yesrs it hasn’t
used half as many tires

How do you use the third axle? To stop the tractor from rolling off the trailer?

Looks like mobile home axles ? I'd leave it sit and find a trailer with tandem duals.

We have had the exact same trailer for over 20 years with no issues . Never had a problem with mobile home axles either

I built this trailer in 1976. Been everywhere with it. Can buy low boy tires at most dealers.

I buy 14 ply low boy tires locally for around 120$ installed . I Think when I had them reweld the cross brace between the two walking beam axle sets they didn’t get it straight because that’s about the time all the trouble began . I’ve drug that old red trailer all over hauling a lot of weight and never had a problem until lately . The guy I traded with has a set of tandem dually axles he wasn’t to put under it . I actually like the tri axle setup a lot better one it has springs and two I can buy a regular axle and throw under it I need too . I was going to buy a set of axles but by the time I did that I could buy a used trailer ready to go

I had trouble keeping tires on my 22,400 tandem dual gooseneck. I suspect that it could have had something to do with the loads that I was carrying at highway speed.
