I built my first trailer when I was 18, I am 60 now and have built dozens of them for myself, friends, neighbors , etc. It is not hard to do. I always put my axle 6 in. behind center of the bed. Thats the bed measurement( not counting the tongue). For a tandem axle I put the center shackle mount 6in. behind bed center. Remember the longer the tongue the easier it will be to back. Good luck.
