More About The Design Features

More About The Design Features

The trailer plans (aka blueprints) include all the information to build it — not only the trailer, but many choices for customization are included.  Here is a little more detail about the design features.

  • * The 6 x 12 utility trailer plans give a deck size 2 inches wider than 6 ft. and 3.5 inches longer than 12 ft.  (This allows a true 6 ft load width, and true 12 ft load length clearance.)
  • Trailer length, including the tongue, is 198 inches or so depending on options.
  • Total width is 97-ish inches.  Actual width depends on component choices (axles, tires, fenders).
  • Deck height depends on components — from 18 inches up.  (Height shown is approximately 19 inches.)
  • Options for Max load capacity — either 6000 lbs.* or 7000 lbs.* which includes the weight of the trailer.
  • Again, options will change trailer weight.  The flatbed version is 900 lbs – 1000 lbs.  Options like decking choice, sides (or not), tailgate or toolbox, etc. will increase weight.
  • Blueprints have many options.  Some are mutually exclusive, and not all options appear in the pictures.
  • We encourage options and customization to meet your exact needs.  To assist with that, these 6 x 12 Utility Trailer Plans include customization ideas for special uses — from ATV & motorcycles, to trash or furniture or landscape moving.  Feel free to add customization of your own.
