Description

Description

Our smallest utility trailer is great for honey-do’s and modest jobs.  It’s tough just like the others, yet takes less space.  These are DIY plans for a Torsion Axle Trailer – or, we also have the leaf spring trailer plans for the same 4′ x 6′ size if you prefer.

This small and light trailer is a workhorse.  Yes, it’s easier to store and pull with a smaller vehicle, but it’s still fully engineered and tough for a long life.  Torsion axles tend to do very well with small bumps and vibrations, and they offer independent suspension.  Make this 4′ x 6′, or build the 4′ x 8′ Torsion Axle Trailer which is similar, though a little longer.

Plans include easy to follow, illustrated instructions with a parts list and recommendations for places to purchase materials, and components.  There are also options for customizing.
