“Quality boat trailer axles work relatively the same way; they find stability in numbers. The more axles installed, the less load one axle has to endure throughout the length of the trip.

Widely used in the trucking industry, a spread tandem system features at least two axles that allow better weight distribution. In simple terms, this means that one axle doesn’t have to bear the full weight of the cargo. Spreading the axles far enough also contributes to the distribution; two axles too close together may succumb under the sheer, concentrated weight.”
