    Trailer Rebuild

    For those of you that have any interest in trailers, I traded my buddy my favorite 2 place for his larger 3 place, I had sellers remorse but managed to track down another one, it was more neglected than I anticipated.

    It's complete but I'm ordering a new heavier torsion axle with brakes. It is now worthy of carrying a couple of Doos....

    I do it as a stress relief and consider it a "fun" type of project. I wouldn't build one from scratch since I have no formal training and the hassle of getting it titled but I would modify one for the cost of material.

    Thanks!

    Patience I don't have. This project took less than a week working in the evenings and one weekend. I would have finished sooner but had to wait for a shear and brake I ordered to get delivered.

    Looks like with two skis on there you would have a negative tongue weight, by looking at the picture.........


    Looks real nice though

    It has more tongue weight than I want. I'm able to lift 250lbs of Tongue and this is up to that limit with an empty tool box. By the time I add the anchors and crap, I don't think I can lift it. The Doos ride 65%-70% over the front of the axle and 30-35% to the rear with SC extending 6" over the back end of the trailer. I may move the Doo's back with the new 3500# axle.

    Nice job, where did you get your rails(not sure the technical name)? And what are they made of? I have the cheap 2x4's wrapped in carpet for my little dinky trailer.
