NT trailer question

Postby Sailormilan2 » Tue Oct 13, 2015 8:21 pm

After considerabke thought, I have decided to base my build on a 4'x10' Cub style. But increasing the width to 5', and am considering making it 5' tall also.
So, my trailer choices have changed. Rather than a HF kit, I am now looking at the NT out so I can go 5'x8'.
So, the question becomes this: If I weld the NT frame, wouksd it be suitable for occasional off pave road excursions? Not four wheel rock crawling, but dirt roads.
If not, I'm sure I can learn to weld and make my own trailer. Probably save some money that way, I want to spend my time on the box.
Besides, I've already found the adapter hubs that I can use on the NT trailer for my rims. :lol:

I use my HF trailer on some fairly terrible dirt roads. Careful attachment of the sides and bulkhead panels will keep the frame from flexing. Just keep it light. An overloaded trailer won't have a problem on smooth pavement.
