    Started My Trailer

    I stopped in to take a look at my trailer. They have started it..... They are waiting for a few parts to complete it. I have a steel tongue box that is coming, so they will have to weld in some braces and then put in the tongue jack. They are also putting in some guards around the lights and some finishing up stuff.

    This trailer has 14K axles for the larger bearings and better rims/tires, 12K springs for a better ride and a de-rated 9,990 rating for the cheap permanent plate...

    Are those fenders ones you can stand on? When I built my trailer for hauling my B21 (well, I had to do it at a friends house because I don't have a welder), I did not use heavy duty enough wheel fenders.

    Yup, you can stand or jump on them. That is a must for me since I get out of the jeep and stand on them when loading. We added a support under the fender to make them more secure as a bumper. If you look, the rub rail runs you into some angle iron that pushes o ut to the fender, then my tires will stick out just a touch. It does the same in the back. That will allow me to bump a tree in the woods if needed.......

    For an electrical genius, I'm suprised you dont have a "Portable Lighting Machine )
    Heck, I bet you could build one using parts you got laying around your house....

    Looking at your pix, I see the support. Wish I could add that to mine...

    What will you use for the decking? I know I bought my PT 2x8 decking about 2 months in advance and let it sit inside so it could shrink. Had to force it in place, but now there are gaps between the wood. Can't imagine how big the gaps would be if I put the wet, green wood in there.

    And oh yeah, don't ever loan your trailer out. Learned that the hard way....

    I'd fix it but no, wait, I'm not giving Kennyd another line.

    Looks nice Brian. OK, I'm trailer ignorant and freely admit it; but am I correct that trailers don't have shock absorbers and if I'm right...how come?
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    It was one of those last minute things that I thought might help me out when loading a small sports car.

    Pete, I do not see how you could not add the support now? My fenders do not need it, but its one of those things that I wanted.

    I am doing 2x6 by 18' on this guy. I will put them in tight and let them shrink. I want gaps in the wood to allow the water to drain off the deck. My only thought is if I put my diesel oil and diesel on right away or wait a bit.

    I have never really thought about it. Most of the suspension on trailers is much more stiff than cars and you do not seem to get the bouncing effect like you would with a car.
