    Built this whole trailer with .023" wire! Worked surprisingly well after the first few welds, so I stuck with it.

    The axles are rated for 5200# each and the tires are load range E. With the construction of the trailer, I'm sure it can haul all of 10,000# without winking, but I'm not mechanical engineer, so that's just a guess. Fenders this winter. I had a deadline to meet, so they became optional at the time of building. Can't just buy them and put them on, I need to be able to drive over them!

    Yeah No kidding! What he said...

    Very nice trailer. I particularly enjoyed the "before 'n' after sequence.Nice tape measure, Nice neighbourhood. Looks pretty quiet except for the guy with the big huge 4x4 and a welding machine.

    whats with the "temporary" written on the bumber of the truck?
    Will it weld? I loooove electricity!
