Trailer Finished

Well after 2 months the camp/fishing trailer is done. Minus new tires and wheels to match the Jeep.

How long is it from tongue to axle? How does it track? Weigh? Looks great!

It's 12' 10" from hitch to tail, so about 8' 6" roughly from axle to hitch. Also the weight is not known yet. The scale house is further then i want to drive on the old rotted tires. It does track great, even on rutted dirt roads. I pull it with my 4 cyl and its almost like its not there. Once its loaded with all the gear it still should be fine.

Nice. So are you using the same wheel (4-4.5) etc, spacing on the trailer as your Jeep?

Thank you for the kudos. I have to wait for a couple of months before I can afford the matching hubs, then i will be running the same wheels and backspacing.

I forgot to mention that I was able to get to the scale house and it weights only 400 lbs.

Nice job! 400# isn't bad at all!
