    Selling a homebuilt trailer to a private party (CA)

    So I built a 5x10 utility trailer and registered it as such (ie. custom/homemade). It has a VIN sticker and license plate on it. I also have the registration paper from the DMV. If I were to sell this to someone else in California, what steps do I need to take? What steps do they need to...

    Need help with trailer brake and hub install

    So ridiculous! The brake shoes are assembled wrong! I just compared mine with online photos from others. How does this even get past their QC? Both the left and right brakes are like this.

    Need help with trailer brake and hub install

    Am I retarded or is something wrong with my brake and hub kit? This is my first time putting a trailer together, sure, but the hub really should just slide on according to all the videos I've seen. Both the brake are hub are 12" diameter and I've researched online that people use these exact...

    "Reacher"; A multi-purpose trailer build from Nerve Foundry by Spvrtan

    I was originally wanting to do aluminum for the whole cab but now I think I'm just going to do a hybrid approach. The top half will be aluminum for weight savings and durability since it also functions as the outer shell when closed. The bottom half will be plywood for durability, and strength...

    "Reacher"; A multi-purpose trailer build from Nerve Foundry by Spvrtan

    Channel typically has weight savings but the fact that I'm using 3/16" channel versus the usual 1/8" tube kind of minimizes the difference. The main benefit of channel and angle is rust management. I know it'd probably be years of humidity for a tube to rust from the inside out but structural...

    "Reacher"; A multi-purpose trailer build from Nerve Foundry by Spvrtan

    Yea, I plan on doing both. It's just easier sometimes to do a quick social media post but I'll try and keep everything here in more detail, too.

    "Reacher"; A multi-purpose trailer build from Nerve Foundry by Spvrtan

    I posted a while back about starting a build for a trailer design that I think is extremely unique and -- from my research across American and Australian trailer companies -- hasn't been done before (ie. going to try and patent the concept if necessary). If all goes according to plan with the...

    New here (to trailer community)! Aspiring to start a trailer build this Summer..

    Hm. Those numbers are actually not too bad. I think I can modify my designs to account for warping. Thanks for digging this up! That looks promising. The prices seem reasonable, too; though the rates are comparable to solid aluminum sheets. I'm wondering how easy those composite panels are...

    New here (to trailer community)! Aspiring to start a trailer build this Summer..

    That's what I was thinking, too; that or UHMW (but will probably be more expensive). Still not sure if the plastic should be the exterior or interior half of the hybrid wall. Exterior would help with durability in tight trails against branches and light rock wall scratches. Interior would...

    New here (to trailer community)! Aspiring to start a trailer build this Summer..

    Hello, Expedition Portal. The name's Kris and reside in San Diego; I'm stoked to be a part of this expedition trailer community to both learn from all the experienced builders and share the progress of my build once it starts. The goal is to build an adventure trailer that puts function over...

    We sold the RTT a month ago. I don't think we'll be going back to one.

    Early-stage trailer build planning

    Messed around with SketchUp for the first time today and came up with the idea below. This is something the girlfriend and I want to create this year. I'm new to all of this so I would also be learning a lot as I go. Front kick-out sliders Rear low-profile sliders Slide-out foot ramp...
