    thats prity neat, and not that bad a price considering what it is with electronics and 2 electric pullers i dont think i could buy the parts and make one like it for that price. although i could rig something up with a $40 HF winch and some pullys if i wanted one.. ..i been broke too long, im getting realy cheap.

    almost forgot, i have to take this into acount also.(see pic)
    the white are codean, the purple are morphine 30Mg's. i think i now know how they killed Elvis.
    i was stocking up my dayly pill holders yesterday and stoped to look at all the freaking pills i'm on. that metal tray is 9.5" X 5.5", and the pill trays are just part of the monthly suply i still have another bottle in my pocket for realy bad times during the day.
    man i am realy screwed up. so for you yunger guys out there remember take care of your back even if it means saying you wont do something without a crane or lift. you are not inveincable, trust me. one day im a healthy carpentry forman the next im under a knife and eating a pan full of pain pills every month just to take the edje off.at age 35 broken for life. as for you older guys im shore you already know or have had a few close calls to tell ya. it dont matter how strong you are, your spine can only take so much, even if your arms and legs can take more.
    i should start a warning, dont end up like me post with these pic's. i never payed that much atention to how many i took till i saw them laying in a big pile, holly [email protected]!!!
    oh ya, and i got another few bottles of pills to keep the bodily functions working, those were just the ones to help with the pain part.

    dabar39, great looking trailors as i would expect from you.
    mine will have to be multy purpose also so i dont know if it will have sides or not, but if it dose they will likely be removeable. some great ingenuity in those designs, thanks for the pic's.
    weld_13, my last trailor was a side by side version. i made it out of a car dolly with a removable platform for hauling the quads or other stuff. took off the platform and it was a car dolly again. i still have the platform but my brother lost the car dolly part. it was not that wide about 7ft i think i'll have to go mesher it for you. but its verry doable. i supose the with would depend on the type of quad though, i dont know if they are all the same or not, all mine are drive shaft mellow versions and all the same with give or take a few inches. but the raceing-dirt monsters might be wider, probly be best to mesher first, then build.
    now if i can just get the time to build the trailor i'll be good to go. i got a fair amount of stuff to build with just need to sort it out and decide on a form or methode to get it done, then find the time wile the wife can wach the kids so i can play.
    its tuff haveing the shop and all the stuff i need to do and be home all day unable to go out there and play. usualy by the time the wife gets home my back is about finished for the day and i still cant go play till after an houre laying down. then i get out there and she is calling me back in for diner.......aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggg its enough to drive ya nuts.LOL

    The wheel chocks have another piece (not pictured) that attaches and holds it stable. With the piece (not pictured) removed you simply fold the wheel stop over flush to the deck. The chocks are mounted to the trailer frame and are permanently attached, no need to remove them, just fold em down. As for the hinges I use 3/4" i.d. seamless tubing to make my hinge barrels and 3/4" round stock for the hinge pins, I weld a washer onto one end and I drill the other end of the pins for removable clips to hold it in place.
    I've attached pictures of a double quad trailer that you may be interested in, it's a side load trailer. Dave

    great looking trailors. how do the folding wheel shucks work?? do they fold back into the bed or do you take them out and flip them or some thing?? i think i just figured it out but you could still share the secret.is it just held at the angel by the wooden deck or do you have some thing built into the hinge to stop it at 110%?? man you make nice stuff. i'm going to remake my quad trailor and some wheel stops would be nice. being as its going to be 2 quads deep i will need to run over the first set to get onto the trailor
    as for the removable gate, what do you use just a large pull out pin in the hinges????

    mattf301, I tried to load my cad software in this new computer and am still having problems with it operating properly. When I can get it to operate correctly I will send you some drawings if you still need them. Dave

    It's 18" at level. I guess a 4 1/2' should do it. Thanks again everyone.

    trailer ramp

    SkidSteerSteve brought up a point I forgot to mention about tailgate angle. If the top of your trailer deck is 16" or lower 4' will be o.k. Anything over 16" and you will need to go longer or jack the front of the trailer as mentioned by SkidSteerSteve. Dave

    Just a couple of notes for convenience on ramp gates. I always build mine so that they can be taken off. I've seen a few that have permanent hinges. It's fine if you are only going to be loading wheeled items on it. Also, double check your gate to bed angle and the ground clearance of your bike(s) My cruiser sits pretty low and I have to jack the tongue up on one trailer I have before loading it. Otherwise it will bottom out on the back of the trailer when it goes over. SSS

    Some great ideas Dabar, especially the folding wheel chocks. Mind if I "steel" that idea for my next trailer?

    That sounds good. If it's not too much trouble on the drawing, I would appreciate that.

    ramp gate

    I make most of my gates 4' tall.
    If I was doing your project here's what I would do. I would make the 2 two foot tall sections and hinge them so that it fold together and use the same type of pins that are in your hinges to attach the sides when opened. Does that make any sense? probably not, but at least I know what I'm talking about.Dave

    If you want I'll try to draw something up for you and send it in an e mail
