    Inspiration from this

    Saw this and decided I liked the departure angle
    e3d659b5_dd62b02cc24234e73a22e607491a2cd482b15cc0.jpg

    And also liked this for the tool box and side access to box
    Profile_a2679c1cb947b9d8bd72e5a02fdb63a847ccd51b.jpg

    Quick sketch of newest design:




    As of now frame layout overall length will be shorter due to me wanting to angle the rear up.


    Redesign: (June 6, 2015)

    Legal information:

    Lighting:
    http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/standards/conspicuity/trlrpstr.html


    Registering in PA quoted from pirate4x4:
    http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/tow-rigs-trailers/950188-homemade-trailer-title-pa.html
    When you register your homemadetrailer in Pennsylvania, or one made from a kit, there are several registration steps. Take four color photos, one of each side of the trailer. With these photos, be sure to include the chains attached to the tow hitch, and of the lighting present on the trailer.

    Complete an MV-1, Application for Certificate of Title, and Form MV-426, Application for Reconstructed or Specially Constructed Vehicle.

    You'll also need to submit a Bill of Sale and documents that prove ownership. These documents could include a certificate of title, the manufacturer's certificate or origin, salvage certificate, and receipts for all major components.

    The title fee for homemade trailers is $22.50, plus you'll need to pay sales tax, and the appropriate trailerregistration fee. The annual registration fees for trailers weighing:

    3,000 lbs. or less―$6
    3,001 lbs. to 10,000 lbs.―$12
    10,001 lbs. or more―$27
    You may register trailers 10,000 pounds or less for one to five years at a time.

    Yeah I figure I'll probably have more than 1500 in metal alone so it's gonna get out of hand fast, not to mention I'd like to color match it to the truck so that could get pricey :eek:

    Worked on the design on Sketchup this morning, and updated the OP with screenshots. I think I have the look that I want.

    looking good bud!

    your drawing of the frame, I think the front receiver tube should extend back a little further so when its being towed theres more than just the welds from the A frame to the rectangular frame holding it together.

    Agreed I wanna bring it back to the next cross piece. Reason I didn't was I wanted the spare tire that sits there to recess down in the a frame area, but I'll just set the tire on top and put a mount on the main body.
