Any of ya'll North Easternedrs Interested in Building a FTE Communal Trailer?
I've got the straight front axle, spindles, spring assembly from my F1. I don't want to scrap it and think it would make a great small to medium utility trailer. I probably wouldn't recommend carrying anything bigger than a riding mower on it. I've got some new LED trailer lights and wiring. Would there be anyone here interested in working together to build and supply parts for a trailer that us FTErs could share and use?
-2in receiver hitch,
-steel L channel to make the edges and horizontal supports
-wood planking for the floor
-zink hardware to bolt the floor boards to the metal supports
-maybe some expanded metal to make a rear gate/ramp that folds up and down?
I may be crazy, but i thought it couldn't hurt to see if anyone was interested?
that would be cool but i already have a 20 foot trailer twin axles. with an oak floor, i use to use it all the time when i was on the NC chapter. i am will to always help someone out. till i get a back stab then no more help LOL.
Good on ya for helpin out with your trailer. If i had one, i'd do the same. A local buddy of mine offers the same with his small trailer. I no longer have the F1 front axle. It was dropped off at scrap metal heaven.
my trialer is made out of 3 inch angle iron and 2 x 8 ruough cut oak boards from a saw mill. i have hauled a tractor a 94 f 250 ext cab idi diesel 4x4 on it a bunch of trucks parts etc has been on the trailer. the trailer alone wieghs around 3500 pounds
