Re: Triking CG/balance point for custom trailer

Turns out my guesstimate was close...here is a revised sketch: KENDON T4.jpg Note I'm adapting an early rectangular tube fold-up model, later fold-up versions are round tube and expanded steel mesh deck: https://www.kendonusa.com/ so your mileage may very.
