    Angry Hi I got a ?

    Hi everybody this is my first post. I have been watching this site for a couple of months now and have gotten a ton of usefull info from it. With all the cool projects it sure has me itching to get back out into the shop and starte on my new ( very used ) trailer. Just waiting for the doc to give me the ok to starte walking again , got in a very bad motorcylct accident back in june of 07 , still waiting to go back to work.

    Alright hear is my ? I have been given a tandeum axle trailer in exchange for some snow plow work i did last year. I am going to post the pictures in this post I hope. The trailer frame is good, the tongue is just cobbled together. Also it needs new axles and lights . My main use for the trailer will be hauling firewood. I am loking to put 2 3500lb axles under it.

    The trailer frame is made up of 4" c-channel 3/16 thick with a 1and 1/2" top.
    size of trailer is 5'5" X 11'

    Is this strong enough for 7000lb gross weight

    What materail should I use to replace the tongue, Angle ,c-channel , or tubing

    Should I put on A wood or steal deck

    Sorry for the long post
    Jason
