G'day, I've been wanting to build a tiny trailer for my sierra ever since i started reading peoples trailer buildups, but hadn't got around to it,
but yesterday a mate of mine gave me a part of an old boat trailer so i decided to start a build up myself.
i started thisarvo by cutting 1-1 1/2 feet out of the centre of it and welding it back together, then i raided dads steel rack and found a bit of angle iron for a cross member and a piece of
50x50x5 rhs for a draw bar, i welded them in place but then ran out of light. hopefully i will buy an axle, hubs, springs and a coupling this weekend.
the wheels are spare wheels from my brothers corolla.
Cheers Jack.

if you intend going bush with the trailer - how about using zook rims [same size and type as your sierra]
saves carting another spare, gives you a bit more ground clearance and you can always cannibalise the trailer for wheels if everything goes pear shaped.

G'day i drove up to nubco this morning and got my parts for the axle and a coupling but forgot 2 u bolts, i decided to go with ford pattern as they only had holden, ford and landcruiser.
i rolled a 600-16 bar tread under it but it was way to tall so for should look right.
cheers Jack.
