    Default Off-road Utility Trailer

    Hope this is the right spot, if it Iím sure it will be moved. I was asked to build a utility trailer for a friend. I donít have the wheels and tires, so Iím just using something close in size.

    This will be an all metal trailer with a fair amount of tubing. The trailer will be pulled behind another build I did a few years ago. This build is named the Hackjob. The reason it got this name came from my friend bringing me a large box of random parts and asked me to hack something together for him.





    Here is what I have done so far. In the past I just made my axles, but these are much better than what I was building from scratch. The best part is each axle is separate so it should turn a lot better. Still have a lot more to go, but itís a good start so far.

    I made a little more progress on the trailer. I have the tongue made. I am just waiting for a coupler that Pushrod 3D is making for me. I also got the flooring ready to mount. Next up will be some tube pieces up top to frame it all in.

    Good looking little trailer. From the mesh, I'm guessing more of a cargo trailer versus a camping style.

    Yes, just a way to haul more scale stuff in the woods.

    Almost done with the trailer. All thatís left is putting it back together and mounting the coupler. Have to wait for that to be 3D printed first. Pushrod 3D is designing a coupler which functions, is scale looking and mounts to the Axial receiver ball.

    Here are the final pictures. Still need to add the coupler on the tongue and fill it full of scale goodness.
