I am planning on refurbishing my 1990 something Triad galvanized single
axel trailer this summer so I can do some trailer sailing this fall.
Looking for suggestions and comments.
Contacted Michael Orro at Triad in Raleigh, NC. Read article on trailer
maintenance in Practical Sailor that quoted him extensively. Received
estimate of $1611 to replace axle & springs, 3 wheels & tires, brakes,
brake actuator and assorted parts.
He recommends I go with disk brakes versus current drum brakes and a
heavier axle rated at 6,000 lbs.  Recommendations and estimate seem
reasonable to me.
