That's angib's work. I use a simplified version of that, one of his eariler spreadsheets.

Here's what we've found of his page: http://tnttt.com/Design_Library/Trailer ... %20101.htm

I have made a simple spreadsheet for roughly calculating balance fore & aft. It does not calculate side to side, just gives totals affecting tongue, axle, & gross weight. It is based on moment of axle in inch pounds of force. Requires inches for measurement and US pounds for weight. Measurements must be input as positive forward of axle & negative aft of axle. These already have data input as examples & can be cleared. I am building a Cargo Camper, these are some of my numbers. The sheets are protected, to prevent formula loss. They can be unprotected for modification if errors are found.
