Building A Simple Race Car Trailer, Part 2 Photo Gallery
Tongue weight is very important to the enjoyment of pulling a trailer. This type of trailer needs a minimum of 350 pounds at the tongue. More is better. Use all you can stand without overloading the rear of the tow vehicle. Bathroom scales work for this. Use two of them with a two by four across. This will give you 600 pounds of scale capacity. Be sure to level the trailer, then move the car until the correct weight is reached. It is a good idea to weld in an angle-iron stop so the car is always in the same place.
