Welding pit to trailer

I may want to put my pit on a trailer till I can afford to buy a mobile. Are there some do's and don'ts? I have a upright model that weighs about 600 pounds. I'm worried about it tipping over, or my Trailblazer tipping over. Do I cut down the legs? Must it be mounted in the center of the trailer for stability? Any help is welcome.

I'd post this on the"other" forum! Also , put it on www.bbqpits.com (Klose) . The Tejans, as I'm certain you are aware, can weld anything!

Very nice set up QnBrew. What kind of smoker are you using. I like the stainless steel. Very classy. What's the approximate weight of your mobile (including trailer)?

Both look great....it's got me thinking!

Roughly how much was the welding, and how much did the trailers cost?
