    I'm looking at a few different enclosed trailers, in the 24-30' range. The majority have dual axles, some have triple.
    Aside from the added weight capacity is there any benefit to a triple axle?
    It would be towed by a tundra.

    With Triple axle you get high tire wear when turning, always dragging one axle or the other, I tow a tripple axle construction with civil war artillery on it some occassionally, really hate it. also really have to work at correct hitch height to keep all 3 axles on the road.

    It's honestly a perfect size for our trucks. A 30' triple axle would be too easy to overload.
