Default trailering 5 atvs

i own 5 atvs and just purchased a 24' trailer. i have 2 sportsman 800s, polaris predator, polaris trail blazer, and a yamaha blaster. the will be loaded sideways on the trailer. would i be better of keeping the sportsmans 1 infront of the rear axles and 1 in between the rear axles, then putting the pred and trailblazer in front of these and blaster on back. just wondering if i should keep the heaviest quads over the trailer axles or should i load them upfront and keep all the weight on the tongue.

You will need 10% of the total trailer wt on the tongue! Heavier is better, lighter is dangerous! You could estimate the weights of the machines and keep heaviest over axle, next heavy in front and lighest in rear, test the tongue wt and move accordingly.

It will tow best with the center of mass directly over the lead axle.
