    I design my own trailers based on the requirement of the customer.

    weighs in at 3200 lbs.

    I had stated earlier in the post that it was about 2100 lbs. I didn't include the tires and axles.

    I had it on a truck scale so it could be registered in CO and it weighs 3200#

    I started behind my shop. I didn't have enough room inside so the parking lot became the build location.

    Nice trailer, my little 5 x 10 that i'm building pales in comparison. Did you start the build in an apartment complex parking lot?

    Ya, there are roads like that in every state, however the main freeways and highways are 102".
    If there is a job that needs to be done on the restricted roads and you need to be on that road more than once, get a temp permit. Those are not so bad

    I've been told I need to make and sell these things.
    I have been building custom BBQ trailers for about 6 years now. As soon as the aerospace part of my business is running at full tilt, after my recent move, I was going to build a few spec trailers to see how they sell.

    Max USDOT is 102". I don't know about specific state regs. I will have to check to see though, I wouldn't want to market something that needs a permit unless it's what a customer orders.

    I thought that the max width on a trailer (at least here in Va) was 96". At 101" wide do you have to get a special license or something?

    Build Time

    Well it took 52 hours to build, I didn't have a helper on this.
    Deck is 20' x 101.5" Wide
    Main under frame is 10" Channel
    cross bars are 4" channel on 16" centers
    Outside edges are 6" channel
    Stake pockets I formed from 3/16" x 4" HRS
    Bump rail is 3/8" x 3" HRS
    Tongue is 3" x 4" x 1/4"wall Tube two pieces stacked to 8 x 3 and is 10' long
    with 8" channel at 50deg combined. With a 8" channel inside of main frame to support.
    Deck is simple 2 x 12 fir bolted, that took 8 hours right there.

    OAL is 24'. I have adjustable coupler of either a 2-5/16Ball or lunet ring.
    Total unlaiden weight is 2100 lbs.
