While I was at harbor frieght the other day I saw that they have some trailers there for around 290 dollars. Now I know how harbor frieght stuff is but all I'm putting on it is a couple kayaks and some fishing gear so I bought one. When they brought it out in a cardboard box I thought I had made a mistake, but when I took it out it's all the exact same materials that those $800 trailers at home depot, and lowes are made of. It is just the frame and no deck or railings but everything you need for a trailer is there. We went home, I grabbed a couple friends and some beer and we started in on it. Went to Lowes and got a good deal on some slightly damaged treated lumber and indoor/outdoor carpet and grabbed a couple of those cans of spray on rubber coating. All said and done about 450 dollars invested. A few hours and a few beers later and we had our trailer built. For the money I don't think you can beat it. Just an Idea for those of you looking for a trailer option that doesn't break the bank. By the way you do have to register it. And that's a 16' tarpon on the bottom and the PVC is to prevent any sagging when it gets hot. The trailer is 4' x 8'.
