Description

Description

As our smallest, this 4×6 utility trailer is great for honey-do’s, modest jobs, or to haul a small motorcycle.  Small and light also means easier to store and easy to pull behind a smaller vehicle.  Yet, even small, this trailer is tough to handle all the odd jobs.

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.  (See the animated image in another tab.  Even more options are in the blueprints.)
