    That's a nice set up too My contractor trailer is 6 x 14 one 3500 lbs axle with brakes alot of tongue weight for sure but tows real good and just a bit over the 4500 kg and a bit of a target to get pulled over with missed one blitz left the trailer at my wholesaler to do errands with the truck and drove past all the boys getting inspected.

    Hey Brian Thanks for advice I have 2 trailers with torsion axles now, both steel frames so they are undercoated pretty good but will keep an eye on that for sure. They are the way to go I think but when you can't see the condition they're in I always wonder about it. Saying that, my landscape trailer broke the springs on one side and there really wasn't any warning then. But when the springs broke on the P/U there was a warning when you could smell it from rubbing on the tire LOL It was a GM and apparently they all break.

    I see makes sense Are there any differences do you know about the torsion axels ? Are they all the same quality do you think? Those old Trillium trailers have them. They seem to have been around along time

    Thanks Like I was saying the information here is the best and wish I had more time to follow the forum Life really has got in the way LOL I store a Triton trailer like yours and checked it out. Gosh it's long and I have tonnes of storage here, it's amazing to see the space I use for the traditional clamshells then this one Bullit style. I have really thought about them. One thing I saw was the Triton has disk (surge) brakes. I don't know much about that. I see yours will have no brakes which we don't have on the side by side either. I am liking the fuel savings for sure as PLC said. And of course with the heavier GVWR the yellow sticker issue and I know just suck it up it's just a cost of the sport We have our sledder Daughter in North Bay at Nippissing so there will some travelling I have been told.

    Yes you can change the RGVW 3000 is basically the minimum for $120 but as an example my 1500 weighs 2450 kg that only leaves 550 kg or 1213 lbs for everything else, such as passengers gear cap / toneuau and the tongue weight of a trailer that transmits less than 2800 kg to the ground. My work trailer is 400 lbs, now add my cap and all my tools four adults etc etc Better license it for more than 3000 and pay, and not get a fine for that. Note it's $235 for the year and I noticed you can license up to 4500 KG for the same. not sure what the ministry is thinking because in the past it was graduated I think they will graduate it again and alot of guys will be locked in at the higher number and cost and have to manually change it to be accurate to what they actually need . You can't change the GVWR of the truck, it's attached to the door pillar and that's the number you need to get the combined weight.
