I have thought about that but I am not sure. I have had leaf setups my whole life and am sold on them. My big trailer is torsion and the first thing I noticed about it that I did not like was that the axles are welded to the frame.

This gets discussed ad nauseum on many of the RVing message boards, but unless it falls under a specific DOT regulation for recreational use, nobody has clear jurisdiction in this area.
Be aware that commercial applications (using the trailer to make money) fall under different DOT regulations which vary by location. Make sure you know what is required before putting the trailer on the road.
Well I dont want to get to out of hand with it. I was thinking about just going up to 10 or 15 thousand pounds.
