    The composite decking material is a good idea. I'm sure it's heavier than the alum and it doesn't look as rich but a good, cost effective alternative for certain. I build small cargo trailers that are pulled behind motorcycles and up to now have been using powder coated steel for the frame/tounge assembly. I have said for some time that I would like to change to an alum assembly, I guess I'm gonna have to get the spoolgun warmed up. I'm using a 30A off of a MM251. Are you using 1/4" or 1/8" thick stock on your trailers?

    My thought would be to just graft a wider c-channel section to the 5" instead of plating the whole trailer. Keep the overall cost down for customer. All you would have to have as the wider channel is the rear most 12"-24" depending on wheelbase of bike.

    I finally sold the 2 extra trailers i built .. tough sell to some that are used to cheep 700.00 trailers .. but 2 harley guys bought them .
    I feel its time to build a few more in steel .. to keep the price down , to a 900.00 buck range .
    Going to use 1.5 x 2.5 Steel tube 1/8 th wall .. 3 rail design like the first one with Aluminum rails .. aluminum diamond plate fenders .. white steel wheels .. 5/4 deck material .
    pics are of the aluminum early version .



    will post pics of the new steel unit as i go .
