Customer Question

Thank you for your answer. It's getting late here in Nebraska & I won't see your (second) answer until late tomorrow when I get off work.
I still need to know: (1) on this trailer, is it advisable to _add_ a third axle? And (2) With regard to your first answer, what is the "rear crossmember" you refer to & what about strengthening it?
I will check with the Nebraska DMV about connecting a second, "pup" haul trailer - maybe with a permit something would be possible.

The rear cross member is the frame that goes across the back of the trailer. It will need to be reinforced to support the weight of a hitch to be added. A fabrication weld shop can assist with that and help it pass inspection.

There is a 3rd axle option to where you can haul an additional 1000 lbs. Depending on the weight and what you will be hauling, the third axle option would be better. Especially if you are going to max weight haul on the trailer plus tow.
