I build my own trailers and use this formula for axle placement.
Axle Placement Single/Tandem. Measure the total length of the box(A) and divide that dimension by 2 to find the centerline of the trailer box. For each foot of total box length(A) move the centerline of the axles(B) toward the back of the trailer 1 inch from the centerline of the trailer box.

Wow, I eyeballed my HF trailer and decided about 8" back was good, my trailer is 8' long, guess I got lucky
