To support you in your trailer building project, we are working to provide trailer parts kits for each of the Blueprints in the Mechanical Elements Store. We are currently working with a possible supplier to get these kits together. Who would have thought it was so hard to help folks get a kit? I don’t know, I guess they don’t really want your money.
We’re sorry, but we don’t have them yet. We are still working on it. When we do, the trailer parts kits, descriptions and links will all appear on this page.
Please check back once in a while to see if we are successful in this new addition.
This Page For Trailer Parts Kits
Why does this page exist if we don’t have the Trailer Parts Kits available yet? Because we put the link in the newer plans instructions, and we don’t want to send you to a “Page Not Found” error. We’re sorry if we got your hopes up prematurely. Please accept our apologies.
Please note that all of our trailer plans include a list of components and recommendations for options as you plan and customize your rig. That, incidentally, is one of the hiccups in building the kits. There are a lot of options.
In The Meantime . . .
Some good sources we use (and recommend) for trailer components are these:
- Check Local Sources – Most cities and towns have a local source for trailer parts and accessories. Check your local listings. This is a great way to see the parts prior to purchase, and usually a great way to get some good advice.
- Johnson Trailer Parts – Phone: 602-292-9690. Or, www.JohnsonTrailerParts.com . These guys are super friendly and helpful. It’s a small business, so you get personal attention and quick service.
- Rigid Hitch Inc. – Phone: 800-624-7630. We like Rigid Hitch because they carry quality parts. They don’t sell direct, but call them and they’ll refer you to a dealer nearby.
- eTrailer.com – www.eTrailer.com They have a huge selection, and lots of extra info — like videos, photos, and detailed descriptions — about the components they sell.
There are tons of other resources, of course. These are just some we know and have good experience with. I’m sure there are many others that are ready and willing to assist you.

Beyond plans and potentially kits, our goal is full service for the DIY building community. Yes, we charge for the products we deliver, yet we also have tons of great information to share — absolutely Free. Trailer Wiring Diagrams (with tips and instructions) like in this image are just the start.
Please check out the Mechanics Post for great DIY Tips, Tricks and Advice with building all sorts of projects. There are a bunch of articles about trailers and building trailers.
We also encourage you to share things you know. That’s part of the fun of a DIY community. We’ll pass along your great ideas in our Solutions! series — and yes, we’ll give you the credit!
