I never did post the finished picture of that gigantic trailer I was building.
Well here it is. The deck is 18 feet long and 99 inches wide, just under the legal width limit.
Hauling 3,200 pounds of crap.



And yes a good portion of that trailer was made from what you see all cut apart in my drive way. The sides, the axles, springs, tires and some of the old wood (not shown).
I absolutely gutted it. The original trailer weighed 900 pounds, when I got done with it the empty weight is now right about 2,000 pounds.
