Distributing your cargo evenly is key to safe towing.  The tongue weight of your trailer should be evenly distributed across both axles of your tow vehicle.  You may also want to invest in sway bars for more support.  Read this post for more info on why trailer tongue weight matters.

  1. Thanks for posting this! And Nick, you are a very calm person — no swearing as the guy flips over in front of you. Amazing!
