6×10 Utility Trailer Plans Details:
All our trailers are designed for Strength and for simplicity by using standard steel beams with gusseting and triangulation for rigidity. They are strong, by design, starting at the frame, and they do not rely on materials in the sides to meet capacity. Yes, sides can be added, but they are not required for strength. We believe the frame is the foundation for everything else when you want the trailer to perform and to last.
Towing Stability, is achieved by adhering to design fundamentals so it will tow easily. Plans include adjustable options to adapt to various load types. Equally important is Maneuverability so we make the tongue long enough for proper vehicle spacing, access and to help backing.
Design Versatility is part of the plans — with axle and brake choices, load and bed height variations, sides (or not) as an options for configuration, a top (or not), and several bed material decisions. Also, choices for ramps and tailgates — including a fold down tailgate/ramp combination if desired — all included.
Finally, there are options for Flexibility. These plans have options like a hidden ramp, motorcycle stands, an aerodynamic-ish front, toolbox mounting, infinitely variable tie-down placement, etc. all included. The pictures show several of the options including sides, ramps, tailgates, toolboxes, etc.. Customize the trailer to meet your specific needs.
Plans include the complete drawings and easy to follow, illustrated instructions. They, of course, include a bill of materials (parts and materials list) as well as suggestions for places to purchase the components. Construction tips, and lots of functionality options are part of the package.
