I can't remember what all I put in my thread on the steering, but it took a bit to fine tune it. If I can help with anything, just holler. I can get some dimensions if need be.

Nice to see this project is still moving forward. One tie rod will probably work if it's heavy enough. You get your wheels in a rut with a load on there is going to be a lot of force on that rod when l you turn.

I have like a billion things going at once and of course, the wife's house reno stuff takes precedence. It is fun trying to juggle work, the wife's stuff, and when I get a bit of free time, my own.

I used one tie rod on my wagon. There is one in front going to one side, then one across the back to the other wheel.

Well, today got a lot further on it than I thought I would. Fixed the leaky bead on the tire, cut and fit all tie straps on the bed and tacked them all in place. Went and cut all the side stake pockets. I know, they are a bit big, but I wanted 2 x 4 posts for a future project. Welded up one side fully. Painted that side with a first coat. I also put something on the wood to protect it from the elements.

Yesterday, did a little work on the steering set-up. I welded on a tab for the tie rod that will connect with the tongue of the trailer. I also started building the steering box for attaching the tongue to the trailer.

Only worked on it a bit today, had a bedroom that needs renovated because the boss said she wants it done. Side note, the trailer is sitting behind my house with a 600 lb radiator on it. Low and behold, the radiator needs to go up to the front of the house. We wheeled it down there by hand because the boss said she didn't want it in front of the house while we went on vacation. There is also a massive hill to go up. I do think she realizes the trailer needs a tongue to get it back to where it needs to be. We just won't be able to push it back up and steer it.

Well, today I got all the steering together. I also finally got to use it for a bit of work. The steering took the better part of a day, but it was worth it. Now, I only have to weld some more stake pockets on, paint it green, bolt the deck down, and build some sides. Well, without too much rambling, here is a few pictures.

I got all the stake pockets welded on today and finished welding the right side of the trailer. I did a bit of painting also, for the areas where the boards will be set on tomorrow when I bolt them down. The first picture is from my wife of the supervisor doing his job while I was working on the trailer.

Side note, we took a quick trip to Lowes to pick up some paint and the wife saw the trailers they sell there sitting outside and stopped for a minute to look. She then said, that is rated for 3/4 ton, how much is yours rated for? This one doesn't even look as beefy as yours.
