    Hi Dwayne

    I used the old holes and cut both sides off a little bit to adjust size.

    By the way, it has been more than a year now, I used the trailer the last year and traveled normal gravel roads and long distances on the tar road, had no problems.


    I am actually selling this one, started a new one from scratch. Selling it with the gear (6 groceries drawers and wooden drawers with high density foam with 6 set cutlery and crockery and glasses, gasbottle and jerry can, see photos in thread). If anyone is maybe interested PM me.

    Thanks, thejester.
    I have an 5ft elite with 10 inch wheels. I am hoping to fit 14inch with a +-30mm spacer as you have done.
    Worst case 13 inch. I just want to feel more at ease when doing a bit of gravel when camping.
