The workmanship looks to be excellent. Congratulations on a fine job.

However, I don't understand why you did not install a tongue jack by now. Also, if this is supposed to be for hauling around a lawn or garden tractor, why are there no tie-down rings recessed into the floor. If it is also supposed to be a general purpose trailer, then why is there no outside rail for tie downs to grab onto, all the way around the trailer because no matter what you put in that bed, it must secured.

It would also be a good idea to state the length and width of the actual floor of the trailer along with how high the floor is off the ground when the trailer is hooked to a vehicle and is level.

In addition, what is the axle rated to carry and do the tires match that rating?

This looks like an all-aluminum trailer. Is it?

How thick is the wood deck and what species of wood did you use?

Whats the weight of the trailer as it sits now?

I didn't put in the tiedowns yet so I could install them to suit whoever buys it. The axle is 3500# and the tires are used, if whoever wants them I'll get new rated tires but it will be more$ The floor is 3/4 tounge and groove. No jack so it can be cheaper but I have several in the garage so whoever buys it can have the one they want. I never weighed one finnished but without the wheels and floor I can carry it out of the garrage myself. It is all aluminum cept coupler, axle, floor screws and gate pins.
