    I finally sold the 2 extra trailers i built .. tough sell to some that are used to cheep 700.00 trailers .. but 2 harley guys bought them .
    I feel its time to build a few more in steel .. to keep the price down , to a 900.00 buck range .
    Going to use 1.5 x 2.5 Steel tube 1/8 th wall .. 3 rail design like the first one with Aluminum rails .. aluminum diamond plate fenders .. white steel wheels .. 5/4 deck material .
    pics are of the aluminum early version .



    will post pics of the new steel unit as i go .

    My thought would be to just graft a wider c-channel section to the 5" instead of plating the whole trailer. Keep the overall cost down for customer. All you would have to have as the wider channel is the rear most 12"-24" depending on wheelbase of bike.

    Regards....

I have said for some time that I would like to change to an alum assembly, I guess I'm gonna have to get the spoolgun warmed up. I'm using a 30A off of a MM251. Are you using 1/4" or 1/8" thick stock on your trailers?
    there is a little of both sizes of material .. the tube frame is 1/8 wall other things are 1/4
    got any pics of the trailers ??

    The first trailer I did with the Axle stubs .. bought on e/bay .. nice cause you can make the trailer any width you like un like the standard full axle where the perches are set to a standard width .

    I push only which seems to minimize the soot and also re brush each joint just prior to welding this also has reduced my sooting to almost nothing.
