There are a ton of the old hardtop tent trailer frames kicking around and they also make a good base for building your own trailer. Get one that has the torsion bar suspension, they take a heavy load, trailer good and bulletproof.

Don't feed the bears no matter what they tell you!

After much research, I decided to take TOOMANYTOY's suggestion. I purchased a harbor freight 40.5"x48" trailer capable of carrying 1,090 lbs. for $200. It came in two boxes that I was able to easily transport home in my RAV4. With another $100 worth of lumber, hardware and sweat I was able to construct just what I needed.


I didn't install the included lights since I won't be taking it on the road or the included fenders to keep the width down to 52" to drive through our woods behind the Pioneer. I am able to easily remove the front and back gates to haul long pieces of brush. The 12" wheels track very well through rough terrain.

Might want to consider a collapsible tongue jack from Harbor Freight-makes pushing it around by hand much easier.

Great job, simple, nice looking.

Thanks for the tongue jack suggestion. This is my first trailer and I can see where one would be very nice to have instead of the block of wood I've been using. Also, I found these corner connectors on Amazon for $15/pair. Perfect for making it easy to slide my front and rear gates off and on . . .
