- Single Axle – 2000 lb. Capacity, Leaf Spring Style.
- Has Design Options for a Removable Ramp, and Various Types of Sides.

4×6 Utility Trailer Details:
Plans include easy to follow, illustrated instructions — with a parts list, suggested places to purchase the components, and options for customizing the construction. (The animated image below shows some options. Other options are also in the blueprints.)
Design options maximize utility and usefulness, yet they also allow trailer customizing for your own unique needs. A top, sides or tailgate are options. Extras like a motorcycle stand, a ramp, toolbox mounting, tie-down bars, and more (all included in the plans) can add extra function to your 4×6 utility trailer.
This trailer has a traditional leaf spring suspension. If you prefer, we also offer similar 4×6 utility trailer plans designed for a torsion axle. Leaf springs are less money and more common, while torsion axles offer some ride benefits. We also offer blueprints for a 4’x8′-2000# Trailer with the same options as above, just with a 2-foot longer deck.
