    Hi!

    I just stumbled across your website, and I’m very impressed. Trailers have been one of my passions for awhile, and I’ve modified a bunch. I enjoy adding “unique” features…rotating jib cranes to help load, mechanical 2-speed winches, 4-bar linkage gate lifting mechanisms, etc. I recently upgraded a 24′ dove tail triple axle by removing the 8k-lb axles and replacing with 12k-lb oil bath axles, adding lots of gussets and braces, torque tube, etc.

    That being said, I’ve never built a trailer from scratch. I’m wanting to build a tandem axle 102″ x 20′ deck over trailer with slide-in rear ramps and a metal floor. I have a pair of 12k-lb Dexter torsion oil bath axles to use and 17.5 tires/wheels. I’m intrigued by your “walking beam” suspension, and plan to use a version of that for this build. Do you have a set of plans I could purchase for a 24k-lb deck over like this?

    Thanks much, Eric

      Thanks for the note. We’ll have a 16K version soon, but nothing as beefy as 24K. Sorry. I can design one for you, but custom design can be expensive. Please use the Contact Us form for further discussion.
