Re: My trailer redo

Nice job on the trailer, I just got done installing a winch on mine, worth every penny imho!

I will suggest you mount a receiver tube on the front of the trailer so you can take the winch off when you are not using it, this will keep it out of the elements and keep it from getting jacked.

Re: My trailer redo

You might think about a slightly larger box and you can lock and store the winch in there out of the weather and eyesight.
Real nice rebuild there. Looks like new.

Re: My trailer redo

Nice job Chuck. Yeah, get to work on the winch. I don't know how I made it before I got mine.

Re: My trailer redo

Sweet build man! I buy and resale trailers on the side. Don't make a bunch of money, but I mainly do it to keep myself busy when I'm bored and to give me some small projects. It is just something I like to do. Sweet build by the way. How much did you pay for the trailer? Looks pretty solid.

Re: My trailer redo

A tree fell on the trailer bending the fenders and breaking a marker light. I was still able to pull up on the fenders and haul a truck though. This trailer is tough. I'll fix the fenders when it warms up.

Re: My trailer redo

I thought of mounting it on a plate at the front of the trailer on the floor. I would have to secure it good somehow. I haven't been looking for one yet. I've been busy trying to get my truck ready for paint.

Re: My trailer redo

Love the wheels. Had the same ones on an '86 Camaro. Sucks about the tree though...

Re: My trailer redo

Yeah well its my fault I guess. Park it near trees and then whine when a tree falls on it. lol


I'll fix the fenders later this summer when it ever warms up.

Re: My trailer redo

I finally got a winch w/ a receiver mount. I'll weld a receiver onto the front of the trailer so it can be removed and stored inside. I'll re-inforce that area also.

Re: My trailer redo

I put the receiver on the trailer tonight. I welded some more on the front to give it a little more support. I welded the receiver on and added two pieces of 2'' angle thats 1/4'' thick. I welded all around the receiver and the angle so its solid. I painted the frontend again since a lot of the paint burned off while I was welding.
