Notice of Discontinuing Trailer Plans:

These plans are being replaced by our newer, more complete and higher capacity plans6’10” bed width, by 16′ length with a choice of  12,000#  or  14,000#  or  16,000#  trailer capacity.  In addition, we also revised our lighter 6×16 trailer plans replacing them with a similar 6’10” x 16′ trailer, but with 7000# and 10,000# options.  Both new plan sets are customizable for a width matching these being replaced.  The new plans also have length options of 14′ or 16′ deck.

Please follow the links above to get the new plans, or get these now while they are still available.


These plans for the big, strong, stiff trailer we provide won’t disappoint.  This trailer is designed tough for continual heavy duty use.  If you’re looking to build a large, very heavy duty trailer — one that has lots of options for customization — this is certainly one to consider.
