    I have a 3×4 tag-a-long trailer. I want to convert it to a 3×5 box type trailer but I want to use the same frame. All the plans I see are for 5x– trailers. I’m not sure I can convert the width fro 5′ to 3′. Any suggestions?

    I have two by trailer axles, with a loading capacity of 1.6ton each. My question with them is whether the will translate into a 3.2tonnage trailer if built properly according to proper plan.

    My second point is: I want to built a 6ft x 14ft or 2m x 4.2m tandem utility trailer for self, my question or request is how to find or get the complete plan for it.

      Yes, adding the axle capacity is correct, but make sure the axles are really the same, and you will need a spring set with a rocker center so the axles will load share.
      2nd, we have plans for a 6×14 available at https://mechanicalelements.com/diy/6×14-7000lb-utility-trailer-plans/ You can modify the dimensions slightly to meet your need, and you will need to convert the materials to metric if that’s what you have available.
