Axis 25.2

Yes we reinforced the frame and it seems to be holding up so far. Got 5000 miles towing.Front end alignment with rear track bar. Bigger sway bars front and rear and front steering stabilizer have made Daddy much happier and less stressed towing

I have my car and trailer loaded and connected to an unaltered 2020 Axis 25.6. No matter what the hitch tongue weight is rated at I know from looking at my frame extension it cannot handle even 500 lbs. Do you have pictures of your modification? There is not much room for mods on mine because of holding tanks.
The trailer was supposed to be a 15' with 3' dovetail. I got taken. It is a 16' with the dovetail cut 1' short which put the axles too far back for proper weight distribution. I'm thinking about moving the axles but that may be too big of a job. Where the car is sitting in the photo is the only position that tows well. Any ideas would be appreciated. [IMG][/IMG]

Glenn, Where in NY do you live. I am working though a similar issue. I have two motorcycles that I would love to carry on one of these.

I am looking at reinforcing the stock hitch to take more tongue weight.

Can you tell me who did your work?
