Decided a small single axle trailer would be perfect for hauling the FToy around....so here goes!

Main rails and tongue are 2x3 -3/16" wall tube....cross rails are 2x3 -1/8" and misc unloaded rails are 2x3 -1/16". Axle is a fullwidth 5200# torsein (already had it) Tires are BFG T/A AS2s on 6 lug trailer wheels, 2680# ea rating at 80psi.

Material list for @Rjorgensen :
2ea 20' pieces of 2x3 -3/16" tube
3ea 20' pieces of 2x3 -1/8" tube (I wouldn't do the -1/16" again, stick to 1/8")
20' 1-1/4"x -1/8 angle iron

Not done yet, but that's what's in there now :)

Working on fender mounts now (removable) and will fill the front rail back to the fender next for a future wider buggy setup... outside rail to rail is 79" with a 12' deck length, perfect for my current FToy.

What is the weight of your crawler i have a tandem axle 18 ft utility trailer that can barely handle what ive got and i have to drive on the top rails since the trailer aint wide enough. The trailer has a weird bounce to it.
