That was what I had planned but that tube is pretty well rotted out front to back. Iíll probably incorporate that folding tongue down the road.
The folding tongue will make a handy anti theft device is what Iím thinking.

With a little bit of square tubing and some welding you could have it repaired along with a removable tongue much like what the state uses on their portable information signs.

Problem with trying to "FIX" a brake like that, is you have to grind the rusted out steel to get to good steel to be able to weld. If its that bad, I'd think you would never find a piece to add a gusset or weld solidly. I'd just weld up a new trailer. Flat bottom boat trailers are simple to make.
