Unless they mean not to transport tilted by the hydraulic cylinders.

Ok, good stuff. I'll build a cross member, put a roller on it and use a transom saver.

Somebody asked about my old 54 Chevy truck,bought it 30 years ago when I was 16 yrs old. Never gave me a reason to get rid of it so I'm still chugging along at 50mph. 3 wrenches and a flat head screwdriver is all you need. Key doesn't leave the ignition, car thief wouldn't know how to start it.

Back on topic, thanks for the advice everyone. This trailer needs to be set up right because the Malahini is at the upper limit size wise.

215 lbs on the tongue, Probably a little on the high side of 10% trailer total weight.

The weight at the ball will be a little less.

Good point Bill. I'll re-weigh it at the ball. I'm kind of a numbers geek so if someone inquires how much tongue weight? I'll know and won't have to guess .
