I do a bit of yard work, grass cutting, tilling etc on the side.....On the side of what, I'm not sure, I'm retired.....lol

Anyways, I started to build this trailer last fall....I was an old house trailer frame that was given to me, shortened it, fixed it up......Have about $400 invested in it.....Finally got the floor on it today. You can load it from the back or the side....Worked out pretty well

GREAT Job on the trailer, I'm going to add a "side door" to mine, also. You guys have to tag a trailer, up there? WOW, never heard of such a thing, I forgot to tag my old van for almost 5 years, never did get pulled over. I found out/remembered when the guy trying to buy it wanted it brought up to date, oops.

16 ft.......bed is 68" wide....72' between the fenders. The side rails can be removed by pulling a few hitch pins.

If you want to build one, just advertise on Craigslist/Kijiji that you are looking for an old house trailer for free, that you will haul it away....I did that and had 3 offered....Seems people are itching to get rid of them.

Actually I had borrowed one from a guy last summer to haul my tractor home.It was in poor shape needed to do some work to it in order to use it.Lights are gone just used some that Princess auto sells with magnetic base.The floor was pretty rotten so I put down a couple sheets of plywood that I removed once I got my tractor home.I was thinking of offering him $$$ for it.Might do that in the next couple weeks.

We have to tag trailers here in PA. They must be pretty skimpy on the rules out there where you are.

Poncho, you did an awesome job with the trailer, looks very professional and I think you already got your money out of it. Great job :thumbs:

We are going to have to do something here before long to get a trailer to haul stuff to the tractor shows.

Thanks guys....As for the tags.....This, being a home built trailer....I have to just go and register it with the MOT (Ministry of Transportation), pay $25 (at least I think its still that) and they will issue a plate.......The one I have on it now belonged to my dear departed father in law. Here, a plate stays with the owner, not the vehicle......

No tags on trailers in Ky if pulled by farm tagged vehicle. Otherwise tagged unless just a small lawn mower hauling size trailer.
