That's looking great! Plenty Stout too.
I'm currently working on a simular job myself. Not building the frame, it's an old fold down camping trailer (5' X 8' 47" between the wheels)frame and the particle board sides crumbled after 10 yrs.
So I'm putting new Treated 1X6 sides and tailgate on it. I got the sides on and a cold snap went through(in fact there was 3" of snow on the ground this morning), so it's been on hold this week.
Supose to be 60 Saturday so I hope to finish it then. It is both pulled on the road and used with the garden tractor on the acreage.

Looking good Maynard, is that a Pontiac under the cover in the back of the shop? Possibly a Can Am or Le Mans GT??

Maynard, your trailer build looks great. I know you said you were originally planning on making it a dump trailer. With how you have it setup are you going to add a dumping feature to it later on? Your welding is superb as usual. I also like how you did the hubs/axles with the mustang spindles.

I haven't ruled out making it a dump later down the road.The way I built it,I can modify it quite easily,but for now it won't be a dumper.
