My brother-in-law gave me a 20 ft trailer house frame in exchange for me rebuilding the slop gate in his manure spreader.  I have been debating on how to build it.  My first thought was to just sheet the deck and add lights.  Then I got to thinking that it would be nice to have it enclosed but I have a welding shop and it is kinda a pain to load steel into enclosed trailers.  So now I am thinking of either an awesome snowmobile trailer style flatbed and ad cabinets and an aluminum skirt, or should I figure out some type of soft sided enclosed where the sides will slide.   Which of these would you all find more useful and versatile?

I was gonna say the same thing.. most big dollar haulers use this simple method..

Door Hinge Pins

Check out the site.. it has tons of other great parts for the trailer..

I like that you put the extra hing in the middle.. I didn't do that when I build my first on and had to weld in a brace to keep it from bending...

Great job so far..

You know we could put this in the "Other Builds" section if you don't mind...?

installed the side door today. i have to weld the door latch together tomorrow using black pipe and galvanized pieces how much of the galvanization should i grind off? What would you use? Mig or arc welder and a fan blowin the zinc oxide away. I really dont want to get sick! I have never welded galvanized parts.

Thanks
