i am looking at building a trailer and have looked on the internet and can't find any plans. A company in S.A. called meigal i think build a very strong offroad trailer and weighs in under 300kg with 500mm sides, 50mm axel electric brakes, 100x50mm drawbar,tipsas well, etc, tips but they also want a lot of money for it as well.
i can make one just as strong but it will end up being a lot heavier with out having one to copy, so i was wondering if you can buy plans for trailers or if anyone knows where to find them on the internet?

Mattie.......

It is unlikely you will find any decent plans on the net.

Best thing is to look at what's on offer, take your measuring tape & paper, tell 'em you need to measure because of, well, whatever takes your fancy........

Get it made, then have it checked. Here in the south of Adelaide, we have a small depot here in Somerton Park behinf my workshop for this purpose. Called Hamilton Holden, on Brighton Road.

If you call them first, they may already know of some ready plans, as they check trailers anyway.

Best of luck

Mattie,

Have a look at this website - http://go.jeep-xj.info/HowtoTrailerPlans1.htm

This guy built his own and it includes plans etc and is pretty good if you are thinking of trying to do the job yourself.

Cheers

Even buying an older brand name on-roader and converting it can lead to a cheap alternative...

Have a friend who has done it, purchased for 2,500, spent 2000, now has really well setup hardfloor camper!
