I've seen scrap piles that would allow for several trailers that size to be built. Just because it's the scrap pile, doesn't mean there isn't good material in it.

Then they aren't really scrap piles are they? I've seen some stuff built from scrap piles and it makes you shake your head. If I wanted to build a trailer, I would use the right materials to build what I wanted rather than use what I had laying around. You might have some materials you could use but substituting smaller and weaker material isn't a good idea.

Not being arrogant, but nothing "smaller or weaker" comes out of my shop.

All too often the case when someone wants to build something for cheap with what they have laying around. Instead of spending $50 or $100 on new steel, it's more of a this will be good enough attitude. You are talking about a building a complete trailer out of old materials for $100 and it won't be smaller or weaker? Good luck with that. Decent tires and rims will cost over $100.
