    Default My Home made Trailer is Done

    I started this Trailer about three months ago, hoping to have it done in about a week, But A lot of other thing had to be done around here, so it took a little longer, yep about three months, It is 14 x 6 it has electric breaks on front wheels, 4 tie downs on each side and 3 tie downs in front,
    I built it to haul my Tractors on,

    I can relate to a project taking longer than expected. That looks like a good trailer. You must have a small tractor like I do.

    Do you have ramps built?
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    To start yes I designed it my self, I still have to build some ramps, I have built a lot of trailers, I have 8 trailers right now, and yes I do need to get rid of a few, but you guys know how hard it is to part with something, The Deck is Aluminum Security Doors I got for ten dollars each about 20 years ago and there is 4 of them on there,
    and the wood is just to fill the space between the doors, as for as cost I have about 600 bucks in it, Wheels $ 159.80,
    Electric breaks for 2 wheels $181.80, 4 Springs $ 87.80, Paint $ 16.00
    Break Controler $ 73.00, And A few othere things Everything else I had.
    I got the parts from etrailer.com with free shipping, And the Girl that took my orders was Great to deal with, Her Name was Emily
    her E-Mail is cs@etrailer.com Or you can call Her At 1-800-298-8924 - 331
    and here is another picture.

    Looks great. Congats on an excellent job.
    The fenders would be the hardest job for me--hate sheet metal work.
    Did you salvage these from another trailer?

    Nice workmanship there.
    One thing though- brakes go on the rear axle if not on both. Has to do with the equalizers shifting weight to the rear axle under braking.

    I agree with the brakes on the rear axle but I have seen them both ways. I actually own a trailer with brakes on the front and one with brakes on the rear. These are on tandems. On my tri-axle I have brakes on all axles.

    On the ones with brakes on the front and brakes on the rear I can not tell any difference.
