4 place trailer project
Well after 3 to 4 weeks and $2500, I am all but done. I took a custom made 28 ' painted trailer, rebuilt it, and had it galvanized. The only thing original is the axles, frame, and winch post. I hafe 40 hours of my own time in it. That is not including having it sand blasted, welded, then dipped. After all this, I almost wish I would have drove my ass to NY and bought shibbys trailer.
The document had pictures of what the trailer was like when I bought it and then I have pictures of how it sits now. I had to replace some steel and do some reinforcement, but this trailer is now solid. Future plans is a aluminum tool chest, fuel racks, and to lay diamand aluminum plate on the tung back to the fuel racks.

I only have 2 of my skis on it now since me and the wife are going on a ride in Houston tomorrow. I saw no need to leave 2 other skis sitting in a parking lot all day waiting to be stolen.
This trailer will easily fit 4 3 seaters. I plan on having 3 gprs and my stand up on it for now.
Oh, future plans also include brakes.

I did learn one thing. Roll out your carpet for the bunks 2 days before you plan on istallig. Stretch well, then let sit some more. Then staple into place. I stappled 1 night, went back the next day and the carpet loosend up. I will stretched it more and added some staples but I am going to do it over later.

What size rims and tires are those and how much where they ?
Wow, whoever backed the beast up that single driveway got skills , hope you can get it out without running over the neighbors mailbox
