i have been thinking about it for a while, and have the material to do it now so here is what im building,
its a 4ftx6-1/2ft trailor with a wood floor, to pull be ind my lifted mower, its just big enough that i could haul my cub cadet garden tractor on it, yet small enough to go on any trail the lifted one goes on, the main use for it is going to be yard work, but i plan on using it to haul my 1 man boat built last summer, and its going to have brackets on the sides spaced evenly for 3/4" pvc to fit into,which is getting bent over the top at night to form like a covered wagon for me to camp in, the tires are some old donuts i got for free and as soon as i get some more welding wire its getting built

It's trailor timeeeee tongue

I'ma build one too, but not for camping, just a little trailer to haul some logs. A multi platform trailer would be the best. Like yours.

Maybe have some fold down pegs or jacks like big motor homes, so the trailer is all stable

Sounds interesting, I wanna see this get built. Maybe ill make one.

What will your roof material be? Some really thick pond liner would probably work great.

Done something similar before. I made it so the sides could fold down ( made it more enclosed than most trailers, but low-profile) and when the sides were down I had poles I could assemble, set in (and 2 each side for under) and made it in theory able to hold almost 1000lbs weight on the axle. It was heavy duty... and a heavy trailer. But, it's a good idea Smile

Free is good! I am thinking to build a little trailer out of this huge plastic bin I scored free. I need a better way to get the garbage down my 1000 foot long driveway!
