With the increasing size of my fleet.
I've been wanting a trailer to haul my airplanes around for some time now.
The project started some time ago. With the basic lader frame welded up last spring.
I'm doing this as a build thread in my blog, in hopes to inspire help or otherwise encourge anyone else who is thinking of doing the trailer idea.
This last week a lot of things came together and I found one of those TUIT's
It was even round so no more excuses.
Just to wet who ever's appitite here's a couple of starter pictures.
The wheels are on for the first time and I wanted to see how level the trailer is behind my 20 year old Honda.
The primary basic ladder is made from 2 inch square thin wall tubeing. 0.062" wall thickness.
The axles that I ordered are mostly used for motorcycle trailers; and are rated at 660 lbs.

I wanted something very low to the ground and light weight so as not to be tempted to use it for yard work.
