Description

Description

As an excellent tandem axle trailer in 6′ width, this trailer is the right size for a lot of uses.  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.

Like all the trailers in our plans, this one has uncompromising strength and with lots of options for versatility allowing you to customize it to meet your needs.  This trailer has a 7000# capacity, meaning tandem 3500# axles.  For a trailer with higher capacity, see the 6′ x 14′ x 12,000# Utility Trailer Plans.  We also have a set of plans for a 6’10” deck width, by 16′ length with a choice of  7000# or 10,000# trailer capacity.
