Ha! I wanted an Adrenaline trailer for a while but my wife was never convinced. I don’t think I would want to test my own trailer like that, but if Oliver wanted to donate one for science, I’d oblige. I’m mostly impressed with the strength of the hitch in that video.
I wouldn’t do anything extreme with the suspension. I do like the trailing arm, coil spring suspensions, but I think that unless you go all the way with adjustable airbags like the Kimberleys, that it’s not really necessary. Not for what we’ll be doing.
I’d keep the same general arrangement but beef up the subframe and suspension hangers, and add cross members to support a sway bar front and rear. It’s really such a simple design that once you say you want new springs and spring hangers, the only thing left are the two frame pieces anyway.
