How to load the trailer?

The load inside your trailer must be placed evenly so that the center of gravity is above the axle (if there is one) or between the axles of the trailer. Forward shifting the center of gravity will cause undue stress on the hitch and the entire rear of the car, reducing the traction of the steered wheels to the road.

Offsetting back will raise the back of the car, which will degrade traction on the rear wheels. In this case, the center of gravity of the transported cargo should be as low as possible, since the higher it is, the more prone the trailer is to longitudinal and lateral buildup, which impairs handling.
