I bought an ATV trailer the other day. A nice one for two ATVs, with a flat
metal deck made out of small punched channel, the frame made out of 2" x 3"
rails. Powder coated. Attatched ramps. It looks really nice. It has a
My only question is that it has a 3" x 3" square tube hitch. The member has
been form bent. I know that the thing will bend if jacknifed, as I have
repaired many of them that were bent. I usually just cut out the bad part
and replaced with new 3" x 3" x .120" tube. I have seen a jillion of them
on boat trailers.
I will be hauling two ATVs, combined weight about 1,250, and they can be
positioned so that there is not a lot of tongue weight.
If it was you, would you put diagonal long braces, or gusset up the bends?
The bends are slight, and guess they were done to make the hitch higher. I
hate to mess up the powder coating.
