Building your own trailer can be a challenging and rewarding project and whether you are building a trailer for a specific task in mind or for a general purpose trailer, there will be a design to suit your requirements.
Each design comes with a materials cutting list and parts inventory and is laid out in an easy to follow format which will allow even a novice engineer to build a trailer from scratch.
Some of the free-plans now have a $5 downloadable version which are print friendly and ad free.
For $5 you get everything on the website in an easy to follow construction guide, as well as a set of high quality plans in PDF format, ad free and if you are serious about building a trailer - this is the way to go!
If you want to customize or modify the design, it is as easy as changing the dimensions to suit.
All the single axle utility trailers are suitable to be towed by a compact or SUV and the limit to the type of towing vehicle is the amount of load you intend to carry.
The dual axle utility trailer is suitable to be towed by a vehicle with either a Class 2 or heavier hitch and this trailer is the real workhorse of the utility trailers here.
Check out the following designs, find the right size for your needs, start building and enjoy the benefits of having a trailer crafted by your own hands.
There is almost nothing in the world better than driving down the road towing a trailer that you have crafted using your own hands and skills!
It gives a great feeling of satisfaction to have built a trailer that is uniquely yours and something that you can be proud of.
All the utility trailers have 14" tires, leaf spring suspension with the dual axle having oscillating rocker style suspension. They also have 15" sides with panel steel which can be omitted if you prefer an open trailer.
Full cutting and parts lists are available for each trailer, and cutting and folding details of individual parts (light channel, tongue, sides and tailgates, are found on their respective part pages.
Also available full building instructions and plans for a tow dolly trailer, a flatdeck trailer and a ground loading trailer and a car hauler trailer.
The majority of the plans are in US measurements, but there is the odd plan solely dimensioned in metric. If you are after a complete range of metric plans - click below for our metric website.
