I think we're all guilty of "jerry rigging" things at one time or another. Sometimes you can get by with a quick fix.  My dad always said, "If you're going to take the time to do something, do it right!"  I still like the chain and bolt trick!!!

Bibbyman,

I wish you had a picture of that trailer loaded!  It seems to be a little on the under designed side?  I need to build a log trailer for myself but have waited to see how heavyduty I need to make it.  I am the king of over-kill and have a tendancy to over design things. In the case of the log trailer, I would think bare minimum would be the way to go to keep the GVW down.  I have access to an old house trailer frame with tandem wheels and electric brakes. The material looks to be about what that trailer is made with.  Can you fill me in on the materials used to build this one?  You know size and thickness of the steel.  I will still have to make sure it has lights and fenders I believe.  I live in a rural part of Mass but they still make us abide by the rules of the Mass Registry.  Anyone else who has something to add, feel free to voice your opinion.

Here's an idea

Ok oops so no CL ads, it was a pickup chassis with log bunks and a tow bar hooked to the steering axle. I'd use a stronger chassis than a toyota frame though.  I would like a log trailer myself and I like the steerable idea but I was afraid the trailer would wag around behind the tractor so I think I'd use an electric brake on the back axle, or maybe both axles because I have steep hills to come down.  I might also figure out a 3pt hitch that pins to the drawbar and just put in electric brake controller on the tractor and use a regular gooseneck trailer which I already have.
