Wow, Hendrix is a badass... I've seen his write ups on modding hoods for high lines. Hard to beat experience.
No kidding , he is a heck of an artist .
I like the simplicity of this design.
Would like to learn more about the design and building of it. What are its dimensions and materials? What are the steps of fabrication?
Also, those who have used it for towing, has it proved to be an effective 3 axis hitch?
Thanks in advance,
I can measure the parts for you when I get home but as I recall the box tube is 2"x2"x1/4" wall . The pivot section is 1.5" and the holes are 5/8" . Making it is pretty easy , just take your time making your cuts in the box tubing .
I have only towed it a few miles , but it is for all intents invisible . It tows like a regular trailer and backs like a regular trailer .
The ingenuity and workmanship on this build is amazing. Kudos on salvaging 2 tubs in the process.
I'm heavily leaning toward the Harbor Freight 4x8 modified frame and wooden sides ala the mini trailer thread started by ArmyRN. No welder and limited garage and tools coupled with limited expertise are my the reason.
I cannot wait to see your re-assembly.
I am ready to see the re assembly to ! I go home with it at the end of this week , but I don't know if I will have the time to much other than unload it .
The HF trailer has a lot of potential , look at what JScherb and the Dinoot guys have done with it . I chose to make my own as wanted something a little more stout . I started welding 10 years ago with a Lincoln 100HD and I have progressed to this point now . Keep an eye on Craigs list for a good used name brand welder and start practicing on scrap .
Lastly , thanks for the kind words .
