How to Build a Trailer

  1. You need all those materials and make sure to have them laid out so you’ll know that you have all you needed. Check all the measurements of all wood pieces and be sure that all of the sizes are fit together. Mainly, you may have to measure its length of a trailer you want and measure the width as well. Keep in mind, that you are only making a simple trailer with a wide open top.
  2. Start putting those pieces together. Then you need to have the plywood ready as your baseboards. You need a bolt to its metal parts which is to be connected unto to your base trailer. For your width-wise trailer, you may need some metal rods, this will serve as the support for your baseboards. So when you install it, it will be very easy for you to attach it. When they are all bolted together, then its easy for you to proceed to the next procedure.
  3. Then you can now add the sides of your trailer by using the screwdriver so that it will be easy for you hold on to its side boards. Use the L brackets so that it will connect the end of your sidewalls and your baseboard. It will avoid from falling off and it will add security to the trailer. When your making a basic trailer all you need is just 5inches for the side boards.
  4. Then you may need to connect together all the walls of your trailer by using the L brackets. And just the same connect them on each end to one of the sideboards. So it will secure the baseboards to as well as to the board.
    Check if the sides are all tight and good. Once its been put together, be sure that it is all tight so that things won’t be ruin and won’t fall out. In a few months time, you may have to make sure that you tighten them together but think again its inexpensive and a lot more cheaper than buying a new one.
  5. Lastly, you can now add the lights inside its the last thing that you need to do. Its so easy, just attach the lights on the back of your trailer so that people can see it. Then attach the wire to the generic wiring and you may then plug it right into your trailer light hook it up when you are going to use them. Just easy as 1-2-3. And one tip is to make sure you have enough space for your trailer to pull and turn on the cords out of the harness or else you will be stuck.
