    Default Home Made Trailer

    I finally got around to building that 18’ trailer that I’ve been needing. 5200 pound axles with dual brakes, sealed beam lights, sealed wiring harness, 5’ ramps with storage trays, spare tire holder and brake-a-way controller.

    Brake-a-way controller and my own “CAUTION” and “DANGER” signs that I had made for all my welding jobs.

    There are three breaks in the main wiring harness. This is the middle one where the brakes and clearance lights on the fender braces come out.

    This is the rear wiring breakout. All the connections are soldered and the heat shrink has a heat activated glue that seals out the moister.

    The rear bumper fabricated from c-channel with a ramp lip, C2 marking tape, recessed sealed beam lights, 2” hitch receiver, and wiring jack for second trailer. Note the rub rails and chain pockets incorporated into the sides and covered with C2 marking tape.

    I preassembled the wiring harness and laid it in after painting. The connections are sealed with a heavy wall heat shrink that utilizes a heat melt glue to keep the moister out.

    I welded Texas Stars into the tongue and fenders. I marked the position, drilled the holes and welded them in from the back side so no weld bead would be seen on the outside. Bondo was used to smooth the edges prior to painting.
