6×10 Heavy Duty Trailer Plans Details:
All our trailer designs include Strength and simplicity with standard beams, gusseting and triangulation for rigidity. They are strong, by engineering and design, starting at the frame, and they do not rely on sides to meet capacity. Yes, sides options are included, but they are not required. The frame is a solid foundation so the trailer will perform and last.
Towing Stability, comes from engineering design fundamentals to tow easily. Though the plans include adjustable options for various load types, you can choose. Equally important is Maneuverability, so the tongue is long enough to give proper vehicle spacing.
Design Versatility is in the plans — with axle and brake choices, load and deck height variations, sides (or not), a top (or not), and deck material choices. Options include ramps or tailgates like a fold down tailgate/ramp combination. — All are in the blueprints and instructions.
Finally, there are options for Flexibility like a hidden ramp, motorcycle stands, an aerodynamic-ish front, toolbox mounting, infinitely variable tie-down placement, and more. Pictures show some of the options. While we encourage customizing, we also suggest these guidelines to think about.
Plans include complete drawings and illustrations with the instructions — and construction tips. They also have a parts lists and a materials list along with suggestions for purchasing components.
Utility Trailer Technical Information:
- * Trailers built from these 6×10 heavy duty trailer plans have beds with an actual size 2″ wider than 6 ft. and 3.5″ longer than 10 ft. so the they give a full usable 6 x 10 deck — even with sides and tailgate.
- Length, including the tongue, is 175 inches or so (depending on options and parts chosen).
- Deck height is a factor of design options, and will range from 16″ up. (Standard is about 19″.)
- Options for 6000 lb. or 7000 lb. capacity are in the plans. This is the maximum load for this heavy duty trailer, including the weight of the trailer.
- For a little lighter capacity, a 5200 lb. axle option can substitute in this same design.
- Finished weight depends on design choices, yet a typical flatbed sprung weight is around 800 lbs.
(Total weight is more like 1100 lbs complete.)
- Weight increases with certain bed material options, and things like sides, tailgate, toolbox, etc..
- Many options are in the plans to give added function. Some options are mutually exclusive, and many options are not visible in the pictures.
- Choose customization for special uses – ATV & motorcycles, or trash, or furniture, or landscape needs.
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 !!
