I have a hard time with location of the axle.

Think the front grill offsets the weight of the back vault smoker. Easy access as well.Looks like a great Pitmaker.
How bout some more beans Mr.Taggert? I'd say you've had enough!

Most trailers are a 60/40 split for axle location and this seems too far back to me. I like the design of the platform just not the axle location.

That is a pitmaker. Their setups are solid. I also know this cooker it belongs to a friend of mine. It has banked a lot of money in its time. He is selling it as when he cooks now it is mostly on drums.
Always remember slow and steady wins the race.

Yes, that axle is fine. Mine are set way back and it is a bit tounge heavy.

Id think youd want it tongue heavy. Looks similar to a boat trailer.
