Hi

Say a ute tray in the paper this morning and always though one would be good for a trailer if mounted on a suitable chassis. Does anyone know the approximate weight of a 8 x 6 footer? I googled it but without success.

cheers

My wife and I handled one no problems when we changed one over on the work ute. I would be surprised if it weighed more than 100kg. I made a trailer top from one myself. Great things

It would depend on what you include in the weight. Sides, bars and the mountings underneath.

We slid off the sides and tailgate. The headboard is part of the tray as are the runners underneath. Still think 100 kgs would be tops.

Mine is an 8x6 aluminium tray. Two people can lift it off easily - I'd guess about 80kgs. It has steel rails and supports.
