I am also going to be adding the side rails and support this spring. can not wait until the warm weather comes . yes this is also register with my state, I had to take it to the scale, for weight, and register it as Homemade.
I also will not tolerated negativity , so please don't comment if you don't have anything nice to say.

I suppose the price is right not a heavy duty trailer but would work well for lighter loads say like krusty snow cats

What a assidine thread for a first poster.. Complements only .. Well I propose you left the tongue of your trailer to short and you'll soon find in application the the corner of the trailer into the corner of the tow vehicle. The winner of of the upcoming encounter is as yet uncertain but would you be kind enough to post a picture of incident so we can survey the damages?

Bamby, I'm thinkin' he's one of those who don't want their "feel bads" hurt, hence my silence. I try to be "sensitive".

no not silence. just been busy with my sick daughter.
Anyways. the tongue is 6 feet long. and this is work in progress.
getting 2"x2" angle iron for the sides, of the trailer. And Also I bought this trailer when it was a boat trailer. The guy I bought it from his boat sank when he ran a rife. and he was swimming back to his truck. and me and my daughter was fishing. when we heard him say Sank the fing boat, no need for this trailer anymore. and he pulled the plates off the trailer detached it. so I asked him what happen? he told me and then he said I don't need the trailer or want to tow it empty, so I offer him $200.00 for it.
so this is when I started to mess around with it, and No I have never buildt a custom trailer, before. anyways. it holds 6 snowmobiles, and it hold a dodge neon. thank you for the replys.

Here is another look at my Homemade trailer. I have laid the boards down to see what it will look like. going to attach the boards today, and in two weeks I have 2"x2"x.188. angle iron coming in. And I will be welding them to the sides of the trailer.. with a middle rail. also have new Galvanized rims.
