About The Hard Copies

You can now purchase the hard copy for a number of our trailer plans from our website. If you are interested in purchasing the hard copy (printed copy) of any of the trailer plans offered below, you will select the type and size of the trailer plans that you want to order the hard copy for from the drop down selection boxes below. There are two different prices depending on the plans you purchase.


We call the hard copies of our trailer plans "Trailer Building Manuals". The manuals are 8.5" x 11" and printed on high quality heavy weight 28lb paper. The covers are a gloss finish pvc and the manuals have a plastic comb binding so they will lay flat while you are working from them. All the manuals also contain a web address that you can go to and download the free bonus files. All of the bonus files are in high quality pdf format to make them easy to download and open on any device. The teardrop trailer plans will also have a free download for either the 5x8 or 5x10 trailer frame plans in case you would prefer to build your own frame.

You can find the detailed description for an individual set of trailer plans by selecting the type of plans you are interested from the main menu under “Trailer Plans”. For example, to see the description of our “Teardrop Plans”, you would go to the “Teardrop Plans” page on our site. The hard copies are the same trailer plans put in hard copy format.

Our teardrop plans are right at 70 pages, and our off road trailer plans are over 70 pages. Most of our other plans are over 35 to 45 pages.

A Note From One Of Our Customers:

"To The Folks At DIY Trailer Plans,
I purchased the 5x8 teardrop hard copy from you and I was a little skeptical because so much stuff online is just a rip off anymore. But I really wanted the hard copy and I had not seen them offered anywhere except on one other site and their price was just ridicules. And your plans actually sounded better then theirs so I ordered them. Then I received your email with the tracking# for the plans and I received the package in one week. And the teardrop plans are great! Usually you get less then what you are expecting, but in this case you guys went beyond my expectations. So I had to take minute to send you a note and I want to thank you for being an honest and professional online business. Super plans and well explained plus fast shipping.

Thanks Again, Don"
