The 5′ x 10′ – 3500# utility trailer is a great choice for so many jobs and reasons. This is a torsion axle design with full Engineering to support all the things you may need to do with it. If you prefer, we also have the same size available in a 5 x 10 Leaf Spring suspension design.
- Single, Torsion Axle Design at 3500 lb. Total Capacity.
- 5′ x 10′ is the nominal bed size. The actual bed size is a little larger. We think the width of the cargo it will hold is a better measure than the width of the trailer.
- Has Design Options for great functionality. Things like a Ramp, Sides, and more. See the images for some of our standard options. Build it the options you want.
- Blueprints Include an Optional Motorcycle Rack and lots of Tie-Down possibilities.
- Plans Include Complete Drawings and Illustrated Instructions — many pages of great information.
5′ x 10′ – Utility Trailer Details:
Plans include easy to follow, illustrated instructions, with a parts list, and recommendations for materials and components. Then, because it’s your trailer, we include options for customizing — so you can build it just the way you want it. (The images show possible options.)
We recommend you look through the options, then choose the ones that will make the trailer perfect for you. Use these ideas, or some of your own. A top, sides or tailgate. Maybe a ramp, a tongue mounted toolbox, tie-down bars, or something unique. Use these plans as a base, then customize it perfect.
5′ x 10′ – 3500# Torsion Axle Trailer Technical Information:

- Trailer bed height depends on design options and can range from 16 inches up. (Bed height shown is 20″.)
- Max capacity (depending on options) is 5′ x 10′ – 3500# * including the trailer weight.
- True Torsion Axle Utility Trailer Design — Engineered for long life — even when fully loading the torsion axle.
- While trailer weight varies with design options, the minimal flat bed is approximately 640 lbs. Weight goes up with options from there. See our FAQ on trailer weight.
Reminder: Trailer construction requires metalworking skills and tools for things like cutting, drilling, accurate fixturing and set-up, as well as welding. The strength, durability, and enjoyment depend on how well the trailer is made. Build it well, then Enjoy the Finished Project !!
