    thanks for the help how to build trailer.

    can you do the same for Y-frame?

      Thank you for visiting Mechanical Elements. I know Y-Frames for bicycles, but I don’t think that’s what you’re asking. I’m sorry, I don’t understand. Please explain.

    I’m going to guess he is asking about the type of trailer tongue on your larger utility trailers, with one long center element and two smaller diagonal elements.

    Or, perhaps, just an A-Frame, like travel trailers often use, with no center element.

      Fair enough. Yes, slanted front members would be more complex dealing with the angles, but it’s just a matter of getting a pivot axis and a method of securing it straight out.

    Is the second bolt on the top just tying it in to the front cross member of the tray, or is that a tipping tray?

      The one set of bolts is the hinge, the other set is there to set spacing for the hinge since things always move just a little when welding. Could perhaps have done without the second set, but I wanted something that moves smooth without extra space or friction.
