Easy to build 7x5 Box Trailer Plans on CD

Three 7x5 Box Trailers in one:

~ 7x5 Box Trailer with 475cm high sides
~ 7x5 Box Trailer with a lift off 1m high cage
~ 7x5 Box Trailer with a lift off Tradesman Canopy with side doors and a full width ladder rack
~ Easy to follow professionally drawn plans
~ Extremely easy to build at home
~ You will require the ability to follow plans, undertake basic welding & the ability to use some basic tools
~ Over 80 pages of easy to follow detailed plans right down to building your own hinges

We wanted to build our own trailer & after purchasing several trailer plans on line, we were very disappointed with the quality. In fact, due to the poor quality, I doubt that a home handyman could actually build a trailer from most of the plans we purchased. We also found that in a lot of instances, the sellers are simply promoting an overpriced 'trailer kit'.

After our disappointing attempts at finding suitable trailer plans, we commissioned a fully qualified mechanical engineer specialising in trailer design to design & draw our own trailer plans.

We specified that the plans must meet the following criteria.

~ the plans had to be comprehensive so we could easily build our trailer without stress
~ the plans had to be suitable for any home handy person to build their trailer as long as they had basic welding & tool skills
~ the trailer had to be robust & durable yet suitable for ever day use & still very easy to manoeuvre and tow
~ frame construction of light weight yet substantial steel tube
~ Side and floor construction of sturdy steel plate for longevity
~ the plans were to include a robust 1 metre high lift off wire cage
~ the plans were to include a secure lift off tradesman canopy with side doors & a strong full width ladder rack
~ the use minimal commercial parts - axle (& suspension - we recommend AK-LO brand), jocky wheel, trailer coupling & lights.

So, take the plunge, have fun & enjoy building a quality long lasting box trailer.
