    The hinges are 3/4 bar drilled through the center with a 3/8 bolt through the center. 3 sections for each hinge, 2 welded to the main gate, center welded to the second gate. 8 hinges total. Had to grind a small clearance for the hinge not to rub on each gate. Works great, my Valkyrie interstate weighs 940 lbs, and my 200 lbs on it, the gate does not even flex when loading it.

    The first part of the gate is held by chains, like a truck tailgate. And the second part just tilts at the hinge to the pavement.

    Nice. How do you support the gate at the hinge when it is down!

    Look up champion trailer supply on the web, they have plans for single or tandem axle trailers. they list materials and measurements etc. and they are free.

    Very nice trailer.

    That is the kind of trailer I would like to build. As an experienced welder, you probably have the plans in your head but I would like to know those same plans if you have them on paper somewhere. That is, if you are inclined to share. If not, I understand. I like the beam frame idea. If you know where I can purchase some plans, I would appreciate that as well. Thanks in advance.

    Looks great, very nice job. I use allot of recycled steel from work for my personal projects.

    The lights in the gate, were to save width on the trailer. I have a narrow drive with a couple of bends. Need all the help I could get to make it a little easier to back in.
