Well since I finally have some free time I figured I would treat myself with a good off-road trailer. This trailer will address two needs for me, 1. carry all of our camping gear and my RTT while on trips and 2. carry my 4-wheeler from time to time.
I did a ton of research on this and Box Rockets trailer build has by far been the biggest help in what direction I want to take mine so I thank you for that Box Rocket.
This is really just a bare minimum start to a not so extravagant trailer, I don't really need that many bells and whistles, just something that can haul stuff in off-road situations.. I have the trailer axle ordered, the multi-axis hitch built, some tires and rims for it and some barrel hinges for my doors and such. The axle is a 3500 lb axle with a 63" hub-to-hub width and 6x5.5 lug pattern to match my wheels. I got the axle from a company in Dallas called SouthWest Wheel Company and they had a package deal on the axle and all mounting hardware needed for a good price.
The trailer frame and tongue will be made form 2.5" x 3/16th square tube. The floor will be 11 gauge steel, overkill for camping but my 4-wheeler is a fat pig so better to be safe. The wall with be skinned with 16 gauge steel and the wall "studs" and rails will be 1.5" x .120 square tube. I will post pictures as I make my way through this adventure.
