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.)

Design options maximize utility and usefulness, while allowing trailer customizing for your unique needs.  Add sides, a top, or tailgate.  Extras like a motorcycle stand, a ramp, toolbox mounting, tie-down bars, and more.  These are all in the plans as choices for extra function with 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 cost less 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.
