A possible solution to transfer weight from the Power Unit to the Trailer Unit would be to add a third axle to the trailer and remove one of the normal three axles of the Power Unit. This third trailer axle would be a self steering axle which would handle the increased trailer weight and at the same time reduce tire wear and increase trailer stability.
