My Trailer Build
« on: May 29, 2014, 11:03:04 AM »
I needed the trailer to be narrow so that I could park it in the garage without encroaching on the space for my wife's car and short enough to clear the garage with the buggy. I went with a snowmobile torsion axle. I think it turned out just right @ 7' 4" X 10'. Its probably completely overbuilt. I don't have pics of my winch/spare mount yet, but I'll get some later. I have probably 40-50 hrs into it. Got it registered for life last week!

Thanks. So I'm told, but I usually pull a 30' TT so I never get more than 9 MPG anyway.

The trailer is SWEET!!!!!  Very nicely done. 
  Unless you are pulling it for hundreds of miles all the time the mpg will not be an issue,if so ,then just remove the ramp tailgate and carry a pair of light aluminum  ramps.

Thanks Fabr. Worse case I could just add some material and a a few hinges and make it a folding gate to cut down on the area that sticks up. I don't think its an issue. I'm lucky to get 10 MPG out of my diesel anyway.
