Depends on the trailer. Bryan's trailer, which looks like any ordinary
car trailer, works best with Corvairs loaded front-end first. How do I
know this? Because it used to be my trailer before Bryan bought it. I
towed earlies, lates, FCs, even the Fitch Phoenix. The trailer was best
balanced with all loaded front-first.
So, generally speaking, any trailer should be loaded in such a manner as
to achieve the proper balance and tongue weight, and no assumptions
should be made as to which end of the car goes first.
