These car trailers really are not hard to build. A couple items you may want to invest in if you do not already own them that will make life easier while building the frame are a couple 45/90 degree welders clamps. Now you can find these fairly cheap as long as you do not feel the need to purchase the big brand names. I have seen them on Amazon.com for under $20. You do not have to have them to build this trailer, but it sure makes life easier when it comes to getting the main frame square so you can put your first tack welds on the corners.
When we built our car trailers we found a way to save right at $1,000 on the cost of building the trailers and we have shared that information with you in our plans so that if wish to use that option you can.
The car trailers that we sell plans for are 8' wide tandem axle trailers and are considered heavy duty car trailers as they have a gvwr of 10,000#. But they can be built lighter weight, such as 7000# if you should wish to do so.
The actual deck width on our 8' wide trailers is 86" wide. The actual deck length of each trailer is the length given for that particular trailer. So for example, the actual deck size of our 8' x 20' trailer will be 86" wide x 20' long.
We take a lot of pride in our trailer plans and when we took the information from our designs and built these trailers, we took the time to figure out the easiest ways the trailers could be built as well as keeping the cost as low as possible without effecting the structural integrity of the trailer. And then when we took all of that information and put it into a set of plans, we tried to make sure that every step of building process was clearly explained.
The measurements, drawings and step by building instructions are all in our plans as well as some money saving tips and a couple things that you probably will not find included in any other plans that you could purchase from our competitors. The first of which is that we have included the information for building the trailers with and without the dovetail, so you can decide which best suits your needs.
The second of which is that we have also included the building instructions for all three types of decks. Our car trailer plans include the building instructions for the simple runners as well as the building instructions for a wood deck as well as the building instructions for a metal deck. Because again, we think you should be able to choose the type of deck you want because its your trailer.
All of our car trailer plans contain over 45 pages to eliminate any guess work. The plans include the step by step building instructions and materials list. This means that all of the necessary measurements, sketches, images and drawings that you need to build these trailers from start to finish are included. As well the the step by step instructions that walk you through each step of the building process. We have also included the instructions for building the angle iron loading ramps.
Since the time that we first started selling our plans on line, we have continuously updated our plans, weather it be with changing a part of the instructions so that they are easier to understand or because we have found an easier way to complete a certain step in the building process, so that you will have the best product we could possibly provide.
