Description

Description

An excellent higher capacity tandem axle trailer in 6′ width.  At 14′ length, this trailer is the right size for many people.  It’s not max legal width (we have those also), but it’s wide enough, and it doesn’t clip so many curbs in tight spaces.  We tried to discontinue these plans because they have a lot of overlap with the 6’10” wide one, but these remain a popular seller, so we are keeping them.  The plans are great, so if this is the size you’re looking for, please enjoy them.

If you’re looking for a 6×14 tandem axle trailer, build one with these plans.  It’s a HD utility trailer designed and fully engineered from the start as a workhorse.  From these plans you can build a strong trailer designed for continual heavy duty use.  A lighter option is the 6′ x 14′ x 7000#.
