What is the max weight that can be legally loaded on trailer?

All trailers have a weight limit that is stamped on the trailer somewhere. Normally it is stamped on the trailer tongue or on a data plate attached to the tongue or trailer frame. You can also determine the weight the trailer can handle by the diameter of the axle. Find your measurement in the following table of typical axle diameters: 1.5-inch diameter, 1,000 pounds 1.75-inch diameter, 2,000 pounds 2.375-inch diameter, 3,500 pounds 3-inch diameter, 6,000 pounds 3.5-inch diameter, 8,000 pounds 4-inch diameter, 9,000 pounds 5-inch diameter, 10,000 pounds Multiply the axle capacity by the number of axles to get the maximum load capacity for your utility trailer. Remember that no matter the capacity of the trailer you must have the correct trailer hitch in order to safely pull the trailer.

What is tongue weight while towing a boat?

The tongue of the trailer presses down on the trailer hitch, and that is tongue weight. How hard it presses down is a function of the weight in front of the trailer wheels, and how much of the weight is not offset by the weight behind the wheels. If the tongue weight is too great, the rear of the towing vehicle goes down. Too light, and the boat trailer will swing side to side.
