6.5 x 12 ft Utility Trailer Plans - Single Axle
Want to build a trailer but 16' trailer is too big? Why not meet in the middle and lock down plans for a 12 footer? These plans will get you a 6.5' x12' bed, which is wider than your truck bed and twice as long (if your truck has a 6 foot bed anyway).
These basic trailer plans take the guess work out of building a trailer so you don't have to worry about not using thick enough material (or too thick for those of you who overbuild like I usually do).
Anyway, you should get these plans and build this simple trailer. Your wife won't be as proud of you as you are but in the end, she'll be happier when you can haul all the things she buys and you'll be happier hauling it in something you built from scratch.
Heck yes. buy now and send pictures when you're done. Happy Welding!
