I finished up this project several months back but with all of the real estate business keeping me busy; I just kept putting it off. This is a trailer that my buddy Jim made for me out of some scrap peices of 3" channel iron, an old narrowed down mobile home trailer 5,500 lb. axle, and some left over pressure treated lumber he had used for concrete forms. Jim did the welding and I did the grinding, drilling, and goffer work. I want to say right up front that it was VERY generous of Jim to do this for me and I wanted to give him the credit for the fine welder and plans guys that he is! :thumbsup: All in all, this trailer cost me about $250. The tires and wheels I got at a mobile home dealer for $25 each. Jim just charged me for the parts. If you can weld; now that I watched and assisted assembling this trailer, these are not hard to build and you can make your own. This trailer has come in REALLY handy hauling firewood and if you stack it right you can just about get a cord on it. Jim took the 5,500 lb. springs off the axles and substituted 3,500 lb. springs. This trailer can hold more than you think. I have had as much as 60 50lb. bags of fertilizer on it and she handled it just fine.
