Great build. Could you tell me what the size of the original trailer chassis was?

Sorry this took so long... The original trailer is a 5' X 8' landscape trailer from Lowe's that I got on sale. I removed the ramp (and sold it on Craigslist), and put on a 1' longer tongue. I also added a 2' receiver to the new tongue to match my other trailers. :thumbsup:

Scott, beautiful workmanship! I was in the process of drawing out plans for a squarebacked benroy. My Bride saw that this was a standby and basically said "That's what I want!" One thing I've learned in 40 years of marriage is the truism " Happy wife, happy life!"

What are your over all dimensions? My son has the plans to build me a 5 X 10 utility trailer that has the side rails like yours. I have taken note of your comment to situate the mattress so one doesn't have to climb over the other to greet in and out bed.

Thanks for sharing this!
