    Default You're going to make us guess?

    Looks like that was a well-though-out process. But, what is it?

    Oh, I missed the axle and springs because I was focused on the lighter cross pieces and grid/grate. What is the strategy for the deck, and what will you be hauling?

    I got my hands on several of those 3'x4' grills. The're pretty strurdy. I cut them to fit the spaces and weld it to the frame. I'll simply be using the trailer for a 4x4 or a snowmobile. May sell it and build a bigger and stronger one for myself.

    I like the grid idea I used heavy expanded metal for mine, then the snow dosent pile up on it.
