    My bad for saying 2/3. In any case the centerline of the axle is 73" from the front of the frame. I used the dimensions from a trailer made by a company called Big Tex Trailers who have been around a long time, so I figure they know trailers. The particular model I copied, somewhat anyway, also used 3 x 2 x 3/16 angle for the tongue as well so I feel confident the trailer will do just fine.

    Default Trailer Looks Great

    Hope you make some more progress. I plan on building one similar for my Jeeps. My TJ can only tow 1k pounds so I need to make something light. Do you have an estimate on weight?

    More or less finished except for a few little odds & ends. I'm going to make some detatchable fences two feet tall as my wife will use this trailer for her business & carries things that are bulky but not really heavy. Also going to make detatchable ramps for when I need to load a lawn tractor etc.

    That looks Great!
    I see you did what many think about long after the fact, a front center tiedown ring.

    The whole trailer looks very good and I foresee many years of service.

    I do believe that is what I said.

    Oh Donald, the hitch has nothing to do with this calculation, only the box or platform.
    OK...Got it. I thought you meant 60% back from the front of the box,
    not 10% back of CB.
    Close enough .

    Anyway the trailer looks very nice, and workmanship like job.
