There is a small spring under the end away from the hook, sides could be made with angle irons:



Catch hooks over cross pipe in center of tongue:



Adjustable hitch:


Are you insinuating I need to build one of these, Lowell? LOL Before long, I'll have many more carts/trailers than tractors! Gonna have to build some hitches for the rear of these so I can make a train like yours!

It does have a rust hole in the roll over of the body

The tongue is a little tweaked, but not bad

But I think it's savable and it even tilts :D

Found some stuff might be of interest to 'club ' members and wannabees too... :smilewink:

 

"...In recent years there has been a growing need for trailertype vehicles for use with small tractors and other types of towing vehicles used by homeowners and others having the need to transport material and articles over the relatively short distances in rural or suburban homes and industrial or other commercial properties. A trailer adequate to meet all the needs of these types of potential uses should be economical to construct and sell, rugged and yet relatively simple in its construction and operation and additionally it is very frequently desirable that it be constructed in such a way as to be susceptible of being shipped in a knocked-down form and assembled by the user.

Therefore, it is an object of this invention to provide a novel trailer which is relatively inexpensive to fabricate and yet at the same time has sufficient strength to be durable for a long period of time.

It is another object of this invention to provide a novel trailer which is relatively strong in its construction and is therefore easy to assembly and maintain..."
