Find Your Trailer Plans

Finding the right plans for your project can be a chore sometimes.  There are so many websites with plans — from FREE Plans to very expensive — or even designed custom for you.

TIP:  Consider the source.  Many trailer plans come from guys that just love building.  They may be good welders, but not engineers.  Some plans are copies of trailers you can buy cheap off a lot.  Ours are Fully Engineered.  Just consider the source.

Plans here at Mechanical Elements are from Synthesis Engineering Services.  With more than 30 years designing machinery and products for companies like Ford Motor, Peterbilt, and many more, our plans are complete and done right.  (Read more about What Makes Our Plans Better.)
