I finished the tail lights and removable bracket a few weeks ago. The cover is just for when its parked, not when moving. I like that the lights are removable as I can use them for tow lights too, and they wont get broken on the mill.

Finished the winch brackets, winch post, and modified the ramps so they sit on and fit into the bunks. The winch is attached to a trailer plug-in, or whatever it's called. Anyway, I will be able to use it on the log/tractor trailer that I hope to get soon. 14' tandem axle Big Tex trailer (I hope)! Really happy with how it worked, just using a lawnmower battery for now. Not sure if I will need a deep cycle battery. 

My wife took a pic of me using the mill for the first time since I put it on the trailer. Not sure if I want to lower the throttle control or not. It felt ok at chest height, it is predrilled to lower it, just 2 bolts, so I may try it just to see.

@Dana Stanley I just re-visited this thread because I plan to fab a trailer for my new mill. Any follow up suggestions or "Do-overs" you would recommend? Thanks again for your detailed journey....

@goose63 , Dana has not replied, how about you? Any retroactive design changes you would recommend?
Also, where did you procure the axle you used on your trailer, and how wide did make your frame? please advise. Thanks.
