It is frowned upon structurally but in real life on sealed roads it probably will have zero issues. Offroad on dirt and corrugations I reckon it would start to fatigue and fail at that point over time.

It's generally considered bad practice but, according to the engeneers at the crane manufacturer/repairer if certain engineering requirements are followed.

In nsw it was a requirement on home made trailers.

I used silicon weld to keep the guy doing the roadworthy happy.

I am a retired Boilermaker Welder, and I would NEVER lay down that weld.

I do however believe it should be sealed to keep the moisture out, so seal it with silicon. These days there are many colours available if your that keen.
