    Default anybody have plans for a lowboy gooseneck trailer?

    like this one

    http://cgi.ebay.com/2008-NEW-24-GOOS...742.m153.l1262

    i want the deck to be 102" wide though and have the fenders heavy enough to drive a pickup over and then ill just make some wood sides i can take off

    oh yeah i want enough room in the fenders to get a 265/75-16 or 285 tire in it since thats whats on the trucks so when i get new truck tires i got a new set for the trailer!! and something wider to float through the pastures

    and im gonna make it flat with no dovetail, i want it as close to the ground as possible its gonna get used for haulin hay and firewood

    im goin back and forth between torsion axles or air bags, if i can find a good price on some 4k or 5k bags ill probably go that route so i can raise the ride height if im in rough country

    but so far it looks like i can buy a trailer and modify it for less!!

    That trailer went for 3K? That sounds like a deal. I don't think I could build it for cheaper. Isn't there a registration hassle with a home made trailer due to the weight rating? I'm thinking about buying one like that now.

    yeah its a good price on it. the only thing for me is having something with the wider deck and i would like torsion or airbag suspension under it. plus i want to have the extra room in the fenders for the 265 or 285/75-16e tires too and i already have a jack, coupler, wheels and tires.

    here its easy to get a home built trailer registered they will give you your tags based on what the axles are rated for and you have to get an inspection on it but thats only $12

    ive had thoughts of just buyin one from them and addin onto the deck and workin overthe fenders but cant make up my mind. also i havent called them yet to see if i could drop off the parts i already have (there brand new) except for the wheels and tires but there off my horse trailer from when i put aluminum wheels on it to match the truck

    im guessin its probably atleast $1500 in steel about a grand in axles dependin on which way i go and a few hundred on wood
