    Leaf springs are simple to set up, relatively inexpensive, and will handle most situations. (All 1/4 ton military trailers use leaf springs.) Torsion axles are probably not your best choice for serious offroad situations. We need more details regarding expected use, size and weight of trailer (loaded and unloaded), etc.
