    Re: ATV Trailer

    I've been browsing this forum all day. I found this post 28 pages back from the front. I love the looks of this trailer and will be buying the steel for my own as soon as I can find a set of wheels/tires and the axle/springs.

    Thanks for posting the pictures of your trailer.

    Re: ATV Trailer

    I have about $350.00 in it and about 10 hours of build time. I used it all winter and loved it best thing I ever built and makes my ATV into a truck hard to beat.

    Re: ATV Trailer

    This is an old thread that I am bringin back to the top.
    I think this trailer looks great.

    Can anyone explain how you could put a pivot point on this so it could be a dump trailer?

    Thanks

    Attach the tounge to the underside, center of the trailer body with a fabricated hinge. This will allow the body to pivot. Fab up a reciever / clip for the body to set back down on & secure to the tounge. A trailer hitch pin works good here.

    It's back!!!!!
    I still have the trailer and I have hauled well over 1000 pounds in it regulary. It has been the best thing I could have done to make the 4 wheeler usable and really be able to haul stuff.

    Great trailer worm, I intend to scale one like that up a little for a Polaris side by side. I really like the idea of using torsion axles though, any one have experience with those on a similar purpose trailer?

    Re: ATV Trailer

    I have used torsion axles on an atv trailer and they work great. The cost is the draw back. Here in Ak a set of wheels, hubs and bearings will run $370, the tires at over $100 each. Building a trailer with a walking beam axle I spent as much for the wheels & running gear as the metal for the bucket and tounge. I just check etrailer site and the torsion set was priced $380 - 425, without hubs or rubber. But just weld them to a doubler plate on the bottom of the bucket, quick, easy and ride nice.
