I have a harbor freight trailer for my 1500. I was going to extend the tongue but I have a question. Can I just unbolt the tongue and move it to the outer frame crossmemeber, or should it be attached to the trailer in two different spots like the directions say? Thank You

I moved mine forward a little by bolting the center cross-member forward into a new position. By moving the center cross-member forward 10" or so, and redrilling the holes for where the tongue bolts onto the front cross-member, I was able to gain 10" of tongue length pretty quick.

I threw the trailer together in a couple of nights, so I will do things a bit different on my next one.

Not my pic, BTW....

If you only have it attached to one frame member it will not last. The tongue will twist that thin sheet metal and after a while the metal will break. Those trailers are made out of stamped sheet metal, so make sure to keep everything tight or the bolts will wear out the metal also. The trailers are nice and light, but must not be overloaded or allowed to loosen up.
