Well I started an off road trailer I found the pikes peak trailer so nice but no way could I afford the thing. I started to build my own from scratch on a budget. this is what I have so far :-)
First off I started this build with an 1967 Boat trailer I used lots of parts off this old bird.
Here is the 8 foot main beam I recovered from the boat trailer.
Next I moved on to the axle its made from 3/16 inch 1x1 square tubing.
here is the axle and leaf springs. the axle will have to be cut to size its a bit to long.
Once I broke the trailer down I started to build the basic 5ft x 3ft frame.
More frame building the box is coming together!
Us hanging rope for our makeshift paint hangers.
More to come after the 1st of Feb.!
Sanding, Grinding and Wire brushing the leaf springs try to clean them up they have been on this boat trailer since 1967. The leaf springs look over rated for the trailer any way 5 leafs? what do you think? the trailer is only suppose to be 2000LBS.
One painted with Bedliner lets see how well they hold up once they are on. not like any one is going to be looking at them any way.
