Trailer Build

Post by BZOOK » Wed 03 Jul, 2019 9:02 am

Ok so my mate has a wide variety of steel angle, box section and C section that I have available to me. I am considering building a trailer to tow my Sierra to the tracks. Given the years of experience here, what would the ultimate Sierra car carrier look like? What would be the best steel to make it out of. What size, single or double axle, beaver tail etc etc.
Thankyou in advance.

Drive over wheel arches can help keep trailer narrower and lighter.
With just enough room each side of guards to fit your tyres/rims.
Can help keep it all lower for stability, too.
Not sure if this is possible with a Shorty on a Dual axle type.
Duals are nicer to tow, but can be a bitch in tight turning/reversing situations.
More tech able responses will have to be from others :O :mrgreen:

Have a chat to Greg and Jon D, they’re building/have built compact trailers for their Sierras.
