    Trailer axles are dirt cheap. Search them on ebay. I suppose that if I wanted to build a trailer I have everything but the springs to make the axle and I wouldn't bother. Think about buying new, never been overloaded, new brakes, springs etc.

      Buy one and use it. I got a fab shop and it doesn't make sense to build one.

        What he said...You can buy a used trailed, professionally built, far cheaper than you can source all the needed parts. Also, if you are unsure about your welding skills and need to ask how to.......You should not risk welding together a trailer that will be hauling thousands of pounds down a public hwy. I know it happens everyday but I hate the thought of a jack leg built trailer rolling down the hwy beside me and my family.
