What is the trailer for? Boat, car, dump... ? And what state are you in, what kind of gross weight will it have? I have been through the process of building a 10k boat trailer in TX so I can help you on that paperwork trail.

I use the trailer for everything. From hauling my antique tractors to hauling scrap to the junk yard. I live in michigan. the trailer was built to handle 20K including the weight of the trailer. but leagally i can only haul about 13-15K inlcluding trailer due to weight laws here. I took an old equipment trailer that I had that was rotted out and used parts off of it (hitch, jack, ramps and random small peices of steel for braces) once this trailer was finished we just transfered the title to this one with "modified" in the title. i had to get it re weighed for the new title so i could get the new plates.

Extreme 4X4 built a nice gooseneck trailer. I have made a few myself, they arent too bad to make, just not worth the cost in the end, for me anyway. Be careful with the weight of things as they can get heavy and some heavy pieces of steel can be a bear to move by yourself. Also check, check and recheck squareness of the frame and the axels to the frame. Good luck, let us know how it turns out!
