Custom trailer pics
Here is a pic of my custom trailer. I made the trailer. The highlights, 1/8" thick frame, 3500lb springs and axle, 13" chrome wheels, radial tires, oil filled hubs-no greasing bearings, LED lighting, Diamond plate cargo box, Diamond plate steps, 6 ft bunks, black powercoat. I tried to weld most of it to eliminate sqeeks, stainless steel hardware when needed. I modeled my trailer off of www.shadowtrailers.com

I f i were to do it over again i would use thicker material and maybe a tandem axle. I would set up the back of the trailer to tow another trailer. So i could pull two trailers at once. The reason for that is for example yourself (1 jet ski) and a friend (1 jet ski) are traveling 2 hours to lake michigan ( that how far it is from where i am) both of you only have single spot trailers. I'm sure you can see where i;m going with on this idea. You would only nee one tow vehicle
I don;t think it would cost much more to incorperate the additional need strength. You wouldn't need tandem axel but it would look cool.
Geo- it would be cheaper to buy the 2 spot trailer from shadow rather than have me build one. That trailer took me about 4 weeks which doesn't include waiting for part. I was unemployed when i built it. Good thing for credit cards. Build now, pay later

Very nice....I wouldn't even consider building a double axle model. Those are nearly impossible to move around unless it is attached to a tow vehicle. No need for it with a 1000 lb load.

Since this is about custom trailer, I thought I would post mine. I too also used Shadow trailers as a reference.
The frame is 2"x4" with 3,500 lb axle, LED lights, modular truck-trailer plug, with enough room to handle 2 Sea Doos, the wheels are 15"

Looks great, looks like you could park a car on that thing. did you design it to convert to a flat bed trailer? One thing i noticed was no winch post? not that from the looks of it you need, rare to see without one though
I did notice the 2" receiver pockets in the floor for flexability. Nice planing.
Would you do anything different if you were to do it all over again?
