    No...not a trailer to HAUL my Blazer,but one for my Blazer to haul.

    Took me about 3 weeks off and on and cost me about $1000.00 Canadian to build.(Christ,steel is expensive!:mad1:)
    It's 5'x8' with 16" sides.Has a 3500lb axle with 15" rims and trailer tires.

    Thought it turned out well for a 1st time try.

    Here are few of it during the build.

    Ran the wires through the frame so there are NO exposed wires at all.

    Looks great, especially running the wires through the frame. What's the load of choice? Do you camp or is it more for parts runs and such?

    Mainly to haul yard waste,drywall,plywood,2x4's etc.

    I live in a very old house(built in 1885) so I have MANY job's to take care of around the house.

    Should be a great general use trailer with the 3500lb axles.

    Got it at a place called Princess Auto.They have stores all across Canada.
    It's kinda like the Canadian version of Harbor Freight.

    My best friend just moved from Hamilton to Petrolia two weeks ago! I've yet to visit, but I'll be making my way soon. Do you do any wheeling?

    Very cool dude. :)

    One thing I might do is add a piece of maybe 2x1/8" or 1.5x1/8" angle iron over the corners where the expanded metal is bent at a 90. That'll protect that relitively fragile corner from damage. Nice work. :)

    Not that much.
    Apparently there's a guy that has 40 acre's close by and has some trails on it but I've never been there.

    P/M me when you decide to come to Petrolia.We can have a couple cold "pop's" together.

    no its not a triler, its just the little cargo tray that plugs into the reciever, no wheels or anything. Its not his own idea, but he's just the one I remember seeing on here.
