    If so, or even if you just have one, what size is it and how heavy is it?

    I'm in the process of welding a new steel bed on my car trailer. It's an old travel trailer frame that had a 24' bed length and plywood. Now it's 22' long and is getting a bunch of steel for the bed and fenders.

    How much does your average car trailer weigh?

    Ours is just narrow enough to hold a full size chevy but can't have anything wider then a 10.5 tire. My brother is thinking of redoing the bed to make it fit. Ours weights just under 3,000#'s.

    PS it was used to haul a tractor before we bought it, the rails (not a full width deck, is 1/2" expanded matal.

    Mine is a Titan Gooseneck with a 102 inch by 37 foot deck and a dove tail. Weighs in at just over 7500 pounds.
