    Thats exactly what we were going for, We also discovered that the 2.5" square tube crossmembers fit a 2" receiver tube perfectly so we might make gas can boxes for our racing gas jugs. Between 4 locations we could hold 48 gallons of gas. Complete trailer.png

    The next challenge is to bend the tubing for the winch anchor point. 2" sch 80 pipe tied back into the tongue. Want to be able to pull from another machine, 90 degrees from trailer to load a dead machine or pull from the broken machine onto the trailer.

    Made some more progress on the trailer the last couple weeks.

    4 new tires
    made my fenders and got lights mocked up.
    Had to add some 1.25x.375 bar stock on the back over the lights so the machine tires would rip lights off.
    Added some LED strip lights under the fenders tied into the reverse light circuit to help with back into somewhere at night. So many trips we take seem to be late arrival plus raining. These should help quite a bit.
    Also adding a bolt light right in the frame near the jack leg to help with seeing to put the pin in the drop leg at night.

    Well the first trip on the trailer wasn't a sxs but 4,000lbs of hay bales. Pretty good load for it. Seems I only have 1 axle worth of brakes working so need to check my wiring connections but it wasn't an issue for this trip.

    Also had the trailer weighed to get my title/registration done. 2,300 lbs is what it weighed in at. 400-500 less than what I had in mind so that's great. Best part is that this trailer unloaded makes zero noise over bumpy roads. Hate a clanking trailer especially going through the small towns.

    I'm not sure actually, I need to check that and see. We used the 40/60 estimating for the trailer axle location which seems to work pretty well. It didn't buck at all or pull funny with this load even at 70 mph on I-94 in Michigan.
