Do I need a single axle or tandem axle trailer?

Updated: Sep 20

Most single axle Trailers are rated for 2,990 lbs GVWR or less, unless the axle has brakes on it.

Do I need a single axle or tandem axle trailer?

Advantaged to tandem axle trailers:

4 tires touching the ground as opposed to 2 (helpful in case of a blowout).

Brakes on the axles help the trailer to stop better.

Trailers with 4 tires are generally more stable than trailers with 2 tires.

Can be rated 6,000 lbs and heavier.
