That's why my ATV tilt trailer is now solid with the axle moved back about 5 inches. Cost me a tailgate to learn that lesson but I did get to meet a pretty girl after she rolled the 4x4 4 wheeler off of me.

As light as that trailer was on the nose, I bet that was a fun trip going home.

Another good reason to load a tractor tail first -- onto a flatbed :!: My puckerfactormeter was in overdrive watching that one :roll: :shock: :!:
