If the wheels are moved further forward, the weight can be taken off the hitch. Typically the wheels should be slightly behind the balance point of the load.

Great idea.

I agree with Ruben that you need to re-adjust the balance. You want the load to almost balance on the trailer.


I can't move the trailer any further forward because the canoe is too wide and the trailer wheelbase is too narrow. If the tires contact the canoe while in motion the friction wears a gouge into the plastic canoe.
The solution would be to totally reengineer a new dolly, or figure out a system to support the canoe higher, giving clearance for the wheels underneath.


Can you explain or post closer pics of the wire rope and carabiners?
