i'm thinking about dovetailing my trailer this winter to give me a project to do. my trailer is kind of short anyways. cant remember exactly what it is, 13' seems to stick out in my mind. well i was thinking of adding on about 3' to it, this would be the dovetail portion. does the dovetail really provide any benifit? i just think it'd be nice to have a little more lenght and have smaller, lighter ramps.
i'd probably cut my current ramps in half. use about half for the new ramp, a small portion for a vertical support when ramps are down, and then add spring assist. not sure yet if i'm going to shift the axles. it rides like a dream right now so i really dont want to mess with that. also fix up my fenders and finish it off with some fresh paint in the spring.
here's a bad pic of my current setup:
