Has anyone built their own trailer??? I looking to build a trailer to tow behind my wing, something simple and low tech. After seeing so many trailers on my last trip - I'd like to try using one. I'm looking for a used trailer that is close to NJ, but no luck. So I thought if someone else has gone this route before, they would share plans, photos, ideas.

Thanks

Tim, go on over to the Trailer forum on this site. It's under the sub-boards. There is a lot of information on trailers and trailer building there.

Welcome aboard,
Glen

Most have built on the Harbor Freight frame and Tulle box. Quickest and cheapest way to go.

Some of us designed and built our own frames and some have even built the box. Not as cheap or quick as the former.

Great stuff = thanks guys. I now have many ideas, this was exactly what I was looking for. I may even contact some when I start the build project this summer.

I would suggest you go to some of the sites listed. One rule I seem to remember is the length of the trailer tongue in relation to the width of the axle.
