    Starting to fully weld cross members on hope to have it mounted onto suspension by end of month, weld on end pieces then as well and run cable inside rails for lights and brakes, will look at seperate wiring between front and rear axle to fine tune braking force due to weight transfer due to the leading/trailing setup of suspension. Due to work can only attack this project every second weekend at the moment.
    Didn't realize there were sets up to adjust brakes force the each axle.

    I do not think there is have not looked into it but have done large transport trailers where you had to balance the braking force on different axles due to leading and trailing suspension arms.

    these were old trailers and the modern ones now have ABS systems much more efficient

    I suppose you could run two brake controllers......but I think you light be overthinking it for a car trailer.

    I agree, don't get to fancy with a trailer.

    If its empty, just dim the brakes, loaded it will be ok.

    If you've got electric brakes I assume you're also looking to register for over 2000kg, so we would normally run load sharing suspension also which helps prevent that issue.

    If anyone is interested, many years ago I bought, from the USA, plans to build a car trailer. I never did build it but I could copy them for anyone interested. There are two versions, single and dual axles.

    I'd have to check but I think they were from JC Whitney.
