Thanks Jake, that axle is a ways back, the long wide wheelbase sure tows nice. Empty the tongue is light enough you can pick it up and wheel the trailer around the driveway, I cant say I've tried that with a boats on there but it might be doable. I've never towed with a Subaru, I'd guess a Subaru would handle this trailer alright, especially if you kept weight further back. Hell they should handle it suspension wise every Subaru I've ever been in rides rougher than most 3/4 and 1 ton trucks.3Thanks for sharing your project.
That axle looks very far back, so I hope your not pulling with a Subaru or your going to risk being squatted. Otherwise look nice.
Feel free to publish cost and time for the benefit of other DIY people.
So far I have probably 12 hours into cutting and welding the steel cross members.
My journeyman carpenter dad and I spent probably 8 hours getting the deck cut, spaced evenly and screwed down.
I've spent countless hours researching lights, rollers, composite decking screws that can go into steel etc.
Thanks! I got that truck when I was 13 or 14, its been real good to me. It just ran a big load of green aspen logs home last week.Trailer's o.k..... That orange truck is B.A.
