Default Plans for building a 4 X 8 Trailer

For those interested I finally got around to developing a set of plans as to how I built my trailer.

Wow that looks a lot better than the chevy rear end bolted to the old outhouse setup I've been using *joke*.



Seriously, nice job Blackie.

I just finished building one and I would consider selling it.
Its 12 long (inside) 4ft wide by 4 ft high. side door. I'm looking at getting one the same length but wider and higher since I will be on the road a lot in the coming season.

Default Nice Job!

I have nothing but time! Looks like I need to build one of these over the winter.
Now that youv'e had a chance to use it. What would you do different?
Nice Job!

Hey Don,
You can look at the progressive construction I did on mine.

You will have to sign up with Kodak, but no big deal, they are just trying to sell stuff.

Looks nice. How much does it weigh and do you have any pic's of the inside? How much is invested? (cnd or us dollar)

Don,
I figure the whole trailer weighs about 750 lbs.

The inside at this point is quite empty, that is didn't do much with it.

I figure it must have cost me about $1200.00 CDN Not sure on the figures though.
